What is ENS?

ENS (Entry Summary Declaration) refers to the European Union 24 hour Advanced Manifest Regulation.


From 1 January 2011, the EU will enforce the advanced manifest rule for all shipments to or through EU ports, which applies to all 27 EU member states.


To put it simply, the EU's ENS is similar to the US's AMS.

· All goods in transit (whether or not the final destination is within the EU)


· All goods in transit (e.g. by trailer, train to a country outside the EU)

Risks of not submitting ENS

If the ENS is not declared in advance, it may seriously lead to the risk that the port of destination will not allow unloading and arrest the ship.


In addition, local customs authorities in EU countries will impose fines or other penalties on carriers and other parties responsible for submitting cargo declarations.

What is EORI?

The EORI system has been used in the EU since July 1, 2009. The EORI number is issued to the applicant by the corresponding EU customs registration, and a common identification number is used within the EU to identify the business entity (ie independent trader, Partnerships, companies or individuals) and customs authorities are more efficient, the purpose of which is to better guarantee the effective implementation of the EU Security Amendment and its contents.


The European Union requires all member states to implement this EORI scheme, and each economic operator in the member states has an independent EORI number for importing, exporting or transiting goods in the EU.


Business entities (i.e. independent traders, partnerships, corporations or individuals) need to use their unique EORI registration number to participate in customs and other government agencies to apply for import and export shipments.

Q&A

Q: My goods are not going to Europe, but just passing through. Do I still need ENS?

A: All ports of destination must declare ENS as long as the ship calls at EU ports first.


Q: Do I need to change the ENS for inspection and how much does it cost?

A: There is a seal in the ENS, the customs inspection container is opened and re-seal, the seal will inevitably change, then it needs to be resent. The ENS fee is 40USD + agency fee.


Q: Who is responsible for ENS fee?

1. The ENS fee of most shipping carriers is paid together with the ocean freight fee, and some shipping carriers must pay the ENS fee in advance even if the ocean freight fee is paid on arrival.

2. The other is to see whether the FOB contract has a special mark on ENS (it may have to be paid in advance or must be paid on arrival).
