EU Advance Cargo Declaration - ECSA guidance - November 2010
The European Union Advance Cargo Declaration Regime becomes effective on January 1st 2011.
This new manifest regulation aims to ensure an equal level of protection against terrorist attacks for all goods shipped into, out of or through the EU through customs controls. It is similar to the advanced manifest regime ("24 hour rule") instituted by the United States' Trade Act of 2002 following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It will affect all freight imported into and exported out of Europe, as well as transhipment cargo.
