    What is BIETC?

    BIETC is a mandatory loading document for all shipments to Gabon. It is required for Libreville, Owenco, Mayumba or any other port. It is also known as CTN and BSC. It was determined as a regulation in 2010 by the Gabon Customs Officials. Failing to present the BIETC document will lead to severe consequences and a hefty fine.


    According to this law, every cargo that has been purchased from abroad and transported for commercial, business, in some cases diplomatic and personal purposes require a Loading Certificate called BIETC – Bordereau d’Identification Électronique de Traçabilité des Cargaisons.

    The shipper or the freight forwarder is responsible for acquiring the BIETC waiver certificate from the authorized representative.
