The Inbound Release Platform (IRP) is a digital platform that facilitates communication between actors within the supply chain and Belgian customs. The platform centralises the legally required information when bringing goods into the EU. 


It digitalises the complex declaration and control process for incoming goods at ports. Moreover, it makes information flows transparent and reliable. The IRP supports all cargo flows (RORO, ferry, container, breakbulk and bulk) in a single process.
