The Import Control System is the electronic security declaration management system for the importation of goods into the European Union customs territory. This security and anti-terrorism regulation allows EU customs administrations to perform risk analyses on goods entering the EU customs territory. These controls are performed on data provided in the Entry Summary Declaration (ENS) which must be transmitted electronically. The ENS declaration must be transmitted to the customs administration of the country of first entry into the EU, within time limits which vary depending on the mode of transport (air, sea, road).
