An ECTN will be approved and issued by AGENZIA GENOVESE, only if the credit on your personal ceiling is adequate.  Click on "How to issue an ECTN" and once you have filled all the fields, have two options:
 
SAVE:
    – A draft version will be saved for further corrections or integrations. (the ECTN is not validated yet and it has a temporary identification number).

VALIDATE
– AGENZIA GENOVESE will send to your email address, joined with your invoice, the ECTN signed and stamped, with its ultimate number. (PDF format).

In your ECTN list, for each of them it is possible to use the command “ERASE” which is available only if you have not asked for the validation yet.

ELIMINATE
– It is possible to eliminate the ECTN request without any additional cost.
 
NB: It is possible to make any change, correction or cancellation of an ECTN without any further cost until the request is not validated.
NB: Please send us a copy of your bill of lading in order to verify the correct filling of the ECTN form.
 
NO ECTN WILL BE CANCELLED OR REFUNDED AFTER THE VALIDATION.
 
AMENDMENT OF AN ECTN
 
If you want to modify an ECTN, after its validation, you must send the request by email to Agenzia Genovese outlining the changes to make. (you will only be able to make a unique request for an amendment for each ECTN).
 
The price of the amendment is 25€ and the potential cost difference (credit/debit) always concerning the same type of goods.
 
It is not possible to ask for an amendment to change the transported goods. In this particular situation, you must fill the ECTN all over again and, as explained above, the ECTN cost will not be refunded.
 
 
These guidelines for the request/issuance of the ECTN will be applied with no exceptions. With the real time telematics control, the Central African Shippers Council is able to control the precise application of the mentioned procedures.
The load that is not covered by a valid ECTN will represent an offense to the rules in force in Central African Republic and, therefore, there will be punishments issued at their destination.
