When transporting cargo to certain African Countries, it is required that a waiver certificate is filled in before the cargo vessel arrives at the port of delivery, in order to clear customs and avoid fines/seizures. (CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUPLIC ,DEMOCRATIC REPUPLIC OF CONGO).
If you are shipping to, or through one of the countries listed then you will need special waiver certificate documentation in order to clear customs and avoid delays.
These certificates “waiver” (also known as ECTN – Electronic Cargo Tracking Note, BESC – BORDEREAU ELECTRONIQUE DE SUIVI DE CARGAISON, FERI – FICHE ELECTRONIQUE DE RENSEIGNEMENT A’ L’IMPOTATION) are required by some African Countries to effectively monitor, supervise and manage traffic in import / export.
Any Waiver document have full details of shipper, consignee, shipping method (container, groupage, etc.), the type and value of the goods transported, the name of the ship and the transportation cost for shipping and other details yet. The waivers may be requested by the shipper or consignee and must be submitted before the cargo arrives at the port of discharging.
The issuing of the waiver is an extra cost to the consignee or shipper and the cost depends on the type of cargo (containers, break bulk, rolling stock, etc), the number of containers, the number of bills of lading issued and the country of loading.
Each Country has its own “Conseil des Chargeurs” and each Council has its own rules for the issuing of Waiver).
By the access to the Country concerned, you can go directly to data entry with automatic waiver request. Along with “draft waiver”, will be attached the invoice for that too.
