Exporting to EU countries by ocean freight?

If you are shipping to European Union countries via ocean freight, the EU's 24 Hour Advance Manifest Rule went into effect on December 31, 2010.  This rule is similar to US Customs rules for importation, it requires that the exporter give information regarding the shipment to the carrier, so that the carrier can can file the information with the EU authorities by the 24-hour deadline. See a graphic of the European Union's import process here.
