Q: Do I have to present the original hard copy of BSC to authorities to get customs clearance for my cargo?
A: Most of the countries do not require the original BSC copy from an Importer. As long as you have a valid certificate number, you can have customs clearance for your cargo without a hassle. On the other hand, the importers in Angola must present the original CNCA certificate to the customs authorities. Authorities of Angola Marine Customs require all the waiver certificates to be in an original form.
