As an IT service provider, enter master data in EMCS or have it changed


If traders wish to transport untaxed products, such as alcohol and alcoholic beverages, tobacco products or energy products, they need a special permit and registration to participate in the computerised Excise Movement and Control System (EMCS). The various transport steps are recorded in this system.

IT service providers can carry out the EMCS message exchange for economic operators. In order to be able to participate in EMCS as an IT service provider, you must first deposit your master data (including name, address, contact person) with the Directorate General of Customs, Directorate II - Master Data Management. In the case of a new application, you will receive the IT service provider identification number from there. You can also have the master data changed with the same application.
