Major changes are taking place concerning Export and Import Control legislation & reporting Systems (ECS/ICS).

Electronic Manifest Declarations are mandatory to provide customs authorities with information, by way of an, of all vessels/aircraft carrying goods into and out of Ireland, both Community and non-Community.

The Union Customs Code has incorporated substantive provisions which now apply, since May 2016.

Penalties have been introduced in the 2011 Finance Act which focuses attention on the administration responsibilities for correct submission of SAD returns.  Failure to make correct declarations also brings closer the possibility of a Customs audit.

A substantial number of companies across the EU, have to date, achieved Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification.  Mutual Recognition is operational between AEO and CTPAT.  Lack of AEO certification may encounter delays with Customs.
