Service Notification Local Clearance stops


Via the Portbase service Notification Local Clearance, forwarders, importers, and agents with an IIAA licence can easily report to Customs if goods arriving from overseas are placed in a customs warehouse or released into free circulation, also known as the regulations ‘Domproc Entreport (DEN)’ and ‘Domproc Import (DIN)’. We assume that use of this service will no longer be possible as of June 3rd. The service Notification Local Clearance is expected to cease to exist then.

As requested by the market, Portbase, in consultation with Customs, has initially managed to extend the use of the Notification Local Clearance under certain conditions. But as of June 3, 2024, the implementation of Import Control System 2 (ICS2) will start. The implementation of this has a direct impact on the functioning of Notification Local Clearance, as a result Portbase can unfortunately no longer offer the Notification Local Clearance from that date.

We realize that this is not a pleasant message for the users of Notification Local Clearance. This is based on the current planning of all customs regulations and related implementations. Customs, branch organisations and Portbase are exploring whether some extension of Notification Local Clearance is possible. We will keep you informed about this. In the meantime, we urge you to take note that per June 3rd you will need to use another suitable customs procedure as a replacement.
