Create an ECTN/BIETC/waiver for Gabon

Are you shipping cargo to Gabon via Libreville or Port Gentil?

With Magnotrade you can create the required Bordereau d’Identification Electronique de Traçabilité des Cargaisons (BIETC) document fast and easy.

Requested documents for Gabon ECTN/BIETC/waiver issuance are:

  • Dated Bill of Lading (draft to start issuance – final BL for validation of the ECTN/BIETC/waiver)
  • Commercial invoice
  • Detailed freight invoice

Following supplementary information is furthermore required:

  • Country of origin of the cargo
  • Shipper’s phone number and email address
  • Receiver’s phone number and email address
  • ETA at the port of discharge
  • Incoterm
  • HS code

An ECTN/BIETC/waiver for Gabon needs to be issued prior to loading of the cargo and its number transmitted to the shipping line. ECTN/BIETC/waiver requests received after shipment will be refused.

The ECTN/BIETC/waiver has to be pre-validated before the vessel departs.

Final validation of the ECTN/BIETC/waiver is submitted to following time limits, please contact us if submission exceeds these time limits:

  • Within 5 calendar days after shipment for loadings from Africa
  • Within 10 calendar days after shipment for loadings from Europe
  • Within 15 calendar days after shipment for all other loadings

It’s important to issue an ECTN/BIETC/waiver as cargoes arriving without valid ECTN/BIETC/waiver will be blocked for delivery by the local customs and high penalties are being charged to the shipper, receiver and shipping line.
