In addition, a new version in the EMCS section is on the certification list. The scope is again clear and there are only very few changes. On the part of customs, certification is not possible until March 2018 at the earliest. The soft migration period on EMCS 2.3 is scheduled for November 25, 2018. After that, the new release must be used.
