Customs Compliance

Meet legislations of Customs and supervisors EU/NL

What is ICS?
The Import Control System supports the process of importing vehicles and goods (via ports and airports). Customs use the ICS system to prevent goods that constitute a security risk from entering the Netherlands or from entering Europe via the Netherlands. In order to select and inspect from the millions of shipments entering the country those goods that constitute a security risk, the Customs authorities have developed a sophisticated selection program. Based on risk analysis, shipments can be selected for inspection (physically or by means of a X-ray scan).

For whom?
Airlines with an ICS permit to deliver pre-arrival information related to shipments destined for the Netherlands or sent via the Netherlands to a destination elsewhere in Europe.

What are the benefits?
ICS provides the Customs authorities with information on the goods in good time prior to their arrival at a Dutch airport. Since the Customs authorities no longer inspect or scan each shipment due to the early availability of data, shipments are available to the handling agent, forwarding agent and importer at an earlier stage. This can save a significant amount of time across the entire logistics chain.

How does it work?
The ICS process includes the following steps:

• Concise declaration for temporary storage of goods to be unloaded (SAL).
• Preliminary application / vehicle notification (aeroplane).
• Risk analysis and risk selection based on summary declaration for temporary storage of the goods to be unloaded.
• Mandatory electronic submission of the entry summary declaration (ENS).
• Diversion request.
• Risk analysis and risk selection of all goods on board the vehicle.

Airlines send the pre-arrival information in good time. This information consists of manifest messages (FFM), Master Air Waybills (FWB) and the House Waybill Consolidation Lists (FHL). Cargonaut collects this shipment information in the ICSHUB, along with information on the expected and actual arrival times. We then prepare the concise declaration for ICS on behalf of the permit holder.

The Web Portal
The ICS permit holder (i.e. the airline) or the handling agent responsible for handling flights for this airline can gain access to the Cargonaut ICS Web Portal – this allows them to track the ICS messages. If shipments are subject to inspection, this is shown in the handling agent’s portal.

The information shown on the ICS for Carriers Web Portal includes:
• Status information: A warning indication specifies whether the manifest has been received and whether the time limit set by the Customs authorities has almost been exceeded.
• Flight details, including carrier code, flight number, ETA, ATA.
• Indications (√) when Manifests, Master Waybills and House Air Waybills have been received.
• Confirmation of whether the Summary Declaration was eventually sent to Customs.

The information shown on the ICS for Handlers Web Portal includes:
• Inspection status: shipments to be inspected or released by Customs.
• Inspection type: physical inspection or scan.
• Shipment and ULD information.

What is it?
A connection to Cargonaut provides you with access to all Customs and government systems and ensures that you are automatically connected to the Dutch government’s Digipoort system.

For whom?
Importers, exporters, handling agents and logistics service providers that wish to prepare their own declarations.

What are the benefits?

• Your declaration details are reused in the logistics chain where possible.
• We check your declaration messages for the correct message format before they are transmitted to the Customs and government systems.
• Cargonaut has an extremely reliable dedicated connection to the government’s Digipoort system.
• You can use our own help desk.
• No need to maintain any connections other than your Cargonaut connection.

How does it work?
You require a permit to complete customs declarations electronically, for PPS and FCGSA*, or for transport in the Customs-Free Zone at Schiphol Airport. In addition, you require software to prepare and send declarations or DGVS transactions. There are various software packages available that provide an interface with Cargonaut. Alternatively, you can use your own in-house software or custom software. If you send your messages to Cargonaut, we will make sure your data is forwarded.

Cargonaut maintains connections with the following systems:

• AGS (Douane Invoer) for electronic import declarations.
• DSU (Douane Uitvoer) for electronic export declarations.
• NCTS for electronic transit declarations.
• DGVS (RTO) for electronic transport and storage notifications.
• ICS for preliminary reports of electronic manifests and air waybills for goods entering the European Union.
• ECS registration of goods departing the European Union.
• CLIENT (*PPS and FCGSA: Plant Protection Service and Food and Consumer Goods Safety Authority).
