ICS2 Release II: FIATA calls for Members to assess readiness of air cargo sector

Following the United States of America’s (US) implementation of the Air Cargo Advance Screening Program (ACAS), the air cargo industry anticipates that multiple countries will strengthen air cargo security and safety risk analysis by implementing Pre-Loading Advance Cargo Information (PLACI) programs. The new European Union (EU) PLACI regime – Import Control System 2.0 Release 2 (ICS2 Release II), which applies to airfreight, came into force on 1 March 2023.

ICS2 is a comprehensive customs management system designed to streamline and enhance security measures in international trade. The below survey aims to assess the readiness of the air cargo industry for the implementation of ICS2 Release II. This update aims to improve efficiency, traceability, and risk management in the transport of cargo by air.
