Future customs procedures
How to submit information in the Common Repository
To submit information in the Common Repository, your company needs to access the system and complete authorised conformance tests.
Please follow these steps.
1. Apply for an EORI number
EORI stands for “Economic Operator Registration and Identification” and is a unique registration number, which should be provided when engaging in any customs related activity in the EU.
If your company does not already hold an EORI number, please apply here.
2. Request access to Swedish Customs' online services
Request access to Swedish Customs’ online services for companies and nominate an account manager.
If your company does not already have access to the online services, please apply here.

3. Request a signature certificate
- Companies exchanging EDI messages with Swedish Customs with a valid TVEDI may use signature certificates from Swedish Customs' EDI. Order your company's signature certificate or a signature certificate from an approved issuer here.
- Companies without TVEDI may use signature certificates issued by an approved issuer.
The website of the European Commission contains a list of approved issuers in the European Union. Please not that certificate must be a Certificate for electronic signature, Qualified certificate for electronic signature, Certificate for electronic seal or Qualified certificate for electronic seal.
4. Sign up for conformance tests
Send an email to ICS2.email@example.com, requesting conformance tests for ICS2. You will receive an email explaining how to access the test environment.

You will receive credentials and access information when registering for conformance tests.
6. Send messages in the production environment

- Assign privileges: The Account Manager should assign user privileges in Swedish Customs' online services to any users who need access to UUM&DS an STI/STP**.
- Register the company's signature certificates in UUM&DS: The certificate that was previously registered in the test environment should now be registered in the production environment. Please use the TAXUD Authentication Portal on the website of the European Commission.
