NIF and PR number needed for waiver Cameroon

October 2017

Shipments to Cameroon need to be accompanied by a BESC (Bordereau Électronique de Suivi des Cargaisons) document, also known as a waiver.

A NIF number and PR number is now needed to get your waiver validated.
Every importer needs to be registered by applying for a NIF (Numero d'Identifacation Fiscale) number. With this unique NIF number, the importer can obtain a transaction number starting with PRxxxx. This PR number differs per shipment and has to be mentioned on the BESC document.
Both numbers need to be communicated to the shipper. Without this PR number, shipments will not be accepted and the BESC document cannot be validated.

More information can be found on our newspage.
