The Customs Facilitation and Security Agreement between Switzerland and the EU is currently being updated. In order to implement the resulting innovations for imports, Switzerland has decided to participate in the EU’s Import Control System 2 (ICS2).
The ICS2 is an advance cargo information system. This system collects data on all goods imported into the common security area of Switzerland, the EU and Norway before they reach the external border of the security area. It replaces the existing IT systems for this purpose.
