Previous article : Gabon BIETC Case Study

Gabon BIETC Case Study2019-03-20T20:21:50+00:00

Hello, I am Jagan, Director of Operations at Shipwaves Logistics company in India. On September 2017 we shipped 2x40HC containers to Libreville, Gabon for the first time. Our shipment arrived to the destination only to be asked for the Loading certificate called BIETC. I know a lot about this certificate now, but didn’t know anything back then.

Get Pricing

We have received a message from Customs Union, that if didn’t provide this document we would receive penalty up to Euro 40000, that is exactly same as the value of goods being sold. We have searched for a way around this and came across GetCTN.com to get this document. Kyle, the manager, was kind to explain the process of obtaining the Gabon BIETC certificate. However, as per Gabon Custom regulations, I was unable to get this document at this point as it was too late to apply. Kyle advised me to bring the cargo back to the loading port, get the BIETC certificate and then reload the containers. I did exactly that and saved almost Euro 30000 for the company.

The motive behind this Case Review post is that I know there are numerous other shippers who do not know about Gabon BIETC certificate. I want those people to note and avoid the situation our company has experienced. Make sure that you apply for the BIETC certificate as soon as possible. Otherwise you will receive penalty up to 100% of value of goods.

Is CTN certificate necessary for LCL container2019-03-20T20:41:57+00:00

Sending small parcel and paying ECTN certificate fee for Full Container Load may seem unfair. Although that is the requirement, there are number of ways to share the cost of ECTN certificate if you are sharing the container.

Get Pricing

First, you can share the cost of ECTN certificate for your LCL container, if you are using freight forwarder and if they have local agents at the destination country to address the container to. In this case, the Master BL is created to Freight Forwarder as the exporter and the local agent as Importer.

Second option arise when exporters from same location sending to same consignee. In this case one of the exporter acts as a intermediator and instead of LCL the container will be mentioned as FCL and only one ECTN certificate for the whole container is enough.

Q: What is PR number for Cameroon?

In French (Guichet Unique) is a port structure which received the agreement by one decree of the presidency to dematerialize all procedure. Therefore he put in place a single window and for all importations, the importer may create an account, receive a PR number who identified his transaction until the clearing goods. In order to establish BESC for Cameroon, PR number is compulsory. Because while creating the certificate we must link his file to ECTN to avoid any problem at Douala.

Q: Is it true that the PR (transaction ID) number and No Contribuable are only needed for import licenses opened after 15/12/2016, how can we know if it is new NIF numbers?

Yes, the import licenses opened after 15/12/2016 would have PR number. You can see the date in the SGS declaration.

Q: What is the standard PR number for used vehicles?

At the moment we don’t require the standard PR number for used vehicles from the GUCE (Guichet Unique / single window ), so for that ECTN just create without PR number we will manage it later.

Q: Where have to clients to request the NIF and PR number

The Shippers may ask for the PR number to the importer in Cameroon. If the importer doesn’t have it, he can contact Email:¬†[email protected],¬†or call T√©l : 00237 233437754 / 00237 2 33410254 /00237 2 33410312

Q: Importer has already issued the import declaration. However, the system automatically rejects the transaction ID. Why?

The importer should make sure he has submitted the Transaction Id in GUCE (Guichet Unique / Single Window). Because even if the import declaration is issued, the Transaction Id will not be accepted until the importer submit it in the platform for the ECTN system to recognize it.

What is Carte Contribuable for Cameroon?
