Customs Software Solution for Italy supporting direct electronic import declaration and electronic export declaration with AIDA


National customs authority systems have special requirements referring to customs filing processes (e.g. country-specific electronic filing formats). MIC aims to provide standardized customs compliance software solutions adaptable to country-specific customs filing requirements for the country of customs declaration.

MIC's customs clearance software solution MIC-CUST® IT supports the direct electronic import declaration and electronic export declaration with the Italian customs administration's system AIDA (Automazione Integrata Dogane ed Accise). The software solution facilitates the transmission of electronic shipment data to AIDA to be used for the import/export processes.

A special feature of our solution for Italy is that we support two different variants for creating electronic import declarations and export declarations. Firstly, MIC offers the possibility to create a combined export and transit declaration. Secondly, MIC still provides the opportunity to create a separate export declaration and subsequently the corresponding transit declaration. Furthermore, it is important to highlight that the AIDA message must be electronically signed. This requires a corresponding certificate which must be provided by the customer. The certificate is used by the user/broker in order to sign the message in MIC-CUST®. This means that no 3rd party tool is required for this step.

Additionally, the Italian customs authority is currently in the process of switching to a new customs system (AIDA Reengineering). The deadline for the replacement of the current import system is already at the end of 2021, whereas there is no detailed schedule for the replacement of the export system. MIC will implement the necessary changes in accordance with the authority timeline.
