    What is ECTN?

    ECTN is a mandatory loading document for all shipments to Guinea Conakry. It is also known as BSC. It was determined as a regulation in 2000 by the Guinea Conakry Customs Officials. It is required for Conakry, Kamsar or any other port. Failing to present the ECTN 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 ECTN – Electronic Cargo Tracking Note.

    The shipper or the freight forwarder is responsible for acquiring the ECTN waiver certificate from the authorised representative.
