On-demand webinar: Getting ready for new air cargo PLACI regulatory requirements

In this on-demand webinar, we discuss how new and changing Pre-Loading Advance Cargo Information (PLACI) requirements including EU-ICS2 are impacting the aviation industry. Furthermore, we explain which steps you can take to prepare for compliance.

How will the implementation of EU-ICS2 impact the air cargo industry?


Effective March 2023, the European Union (EU) will implement the Release 2 of its new “Import Control System” (EU-ICS2) regulations. As a result, all air cargo and mail shipments carried to or via EU Member States will need to comply with EU-ICS2. Non-compliance could result in penalties and even sanctions on carriers and global traders. We recommend starting your preparations early as these changes will require a thorough understanding of this new requirement, updates to your IT systems and business processes, and training of your support staff.
