More ports in the FTPS gateway for ICS and Manifest requires adjustment of business systems

More ports will be added to the system for reporting files to the ICS and Manifest systems. This will require minor adjustments to the businesses’ own systems by May 2021.

The FTPS gateway solution for ICS and Manifest will be expanded with more high ports to meet both current and future needs.

Specifically, the high port range will change from 36000-36100 to 36000-39999.

The change will take place at the following dates:

  • The test environment (TFE) will be upgraded on Wednesday, 10 March 2021 between 7.00 and 8.00.
  • The production environment will be upgraded on Wednesday, 19 May 2021 between 7.45 and 8.00.

Adapting your business’s system

The expansion means that the firewall rules applied by businesses using the FTPS gateway solution may need to be adjusted. If high port is currently only allowed for the 36000-36100 range, the rule must be changed to 36000-39999.

If the new high port range is already covered by the business’s current firewall rules, no change is necessary.

A more detailed description of the FPTS gateway solution is available at www.skat.dk: Særligt for ICS- og Manifest-systemerne (Special information on the ICS and Manifest systems).

The Danish Customs Agency (Toldstyrelsen) urges businesses to communicate this information to relevant foreign business partners.
