Service Description

If you are transporting excise goods under duty suspension and have to use EMCS, you can commission an IT service provider to exchange messages for you via this program. To do this, you need approval from the Directorate General of Customs.

If you, as an economic operator, wish to transport certain untaxed products, for example alcohol and goods containing alcohol, tobacco products or energy products, you require a special permit and registration to participate in the computerized Excise Movement and Control System (EMCS). You record the various transportation steps in the system and exchange messages with customs.
IT service providers can exchange messages for you in the EMCS IT procedure. The IT service providers then provide the software required for message exchange.
