South Africa: Conveyances and Goods (RCG)

April 2018

The South African Government is implementing the Reporting for Conveyances and Goods (RCG) project.

Manifest details for all containerized cargo arriving as of 20th of April 2018 into South Africa are now required to be reported to customs authorities (SARS).  This applies to all cargo being imported, as well as cargo transshipped via South Africa.

The RCG requires carriers and NVOCC’s to electronically file details of all cargo on any vessel intended to sail for South Africa, 24 hours prior to departure from the port of origin. If this deadline is not met, cargo cannot be unloaded from this vessel without express permission from customs authorities.

In order to meet the requirements of the South African customs, it is important that we have the complete B/L instructions in our possession in time.

Visit our country page (under practical info) about South Africa for information about required transport documents, facts & figures and economy.

Ivory Coast: Certificate of Conformity mandatory

April 2018

The government of Ivory Coast is introducing a Verification of Conformity program.

In order to comply with this program, a Certificate of Conformity must accompany all shipments to Ivory Coast. This certificate is mandatory for all shipments with a bill of lading date from April 16th 2018.

The certificate certifies that the products comply with international, national and even regional standards. It can be obtained through a third party inspection agency.

Without this certificate, the cargo cannot be customs cleared and will be rejected. Penalties may apply as well.
