Document: Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command Customer and Carrier Advisory April 24, 2024 CA-24-04-24/0029 

Subject: Import Control System 2 (ICS2) Implementation

Purpose: To advise shippers and carriers on the implementation of ICS2

Be Advised: Starting on 3 June 2024, the European Union will begin implementing a requirement for all member states to accept ICS2 filings from ocean carriers (Release 3). More information on ICS2 can be found at

Ocean carriers and shippers are advised that ICS2 filings are NOT to be completed for any shipment that is being cleared under a Form 302 per Article 104.1.(h) of EU Commission Delegated Regulation 2015/2446, which states that goods moved or used in the context of military activities under cover of a NATO Form 302 or an EU Form 302 are exempt from the requirement to lodge a summary declaration under ICS2.

If you are unclear about whether your shipment will be cleared with a Form 302, or to report any issues with cargo frustrated due to ICS2 filing issues, please contact the below POCs.
