EU To Begin 24 Hour Advance Manifest Rule on Ocean Cargo

July 27, 2010 at 8:00 am

New European Union (EU) requirements for inbound ocean cargo – the European 24 Hour Advanced Manifest Rule – will come into effect on December 31, 2010, according to an article in CIFFA eBulletin as well as customer advisories from ocean carriers.

The new requirements stipulate that ocean carriers bound for an EU port from a non-EU load port must electronically transmit Entry Summary Declaration (ENS) information to the Customs office of the first EU port of entry no later than 24 hours prior to the commencement of vessel loading. For shipments that originate outside of the EU, the carrier must transmit one ENS per Bill of Lading or Seaway Bill.

To prevent delays at the EU port of arrival, it is important that customers provide complete and accurate shipping instructions so the ENS is accurate.

Detailed information on the topic of this bulletin can be accessed via the European Customs Information Portal (
