Depending on the continent the loading port is located, the Gabon authorities have granted 5 to 15 days within which the BIETC certificate must be validated. The authorities are draconian about this policy. The certificate can not be validated and will be penalized if the certificate is not validated within the allocated time frame:

  • 10 calendar days after sailing for shipments with departure Europe
  • 5 calendar days after sailing for shipments with departure Africa
  • 15 calendar days after sailing for shipments with departure America, Asia and Oceania
