Implementation of Sea Cargo Manifest & Transhipment Regulations 2018 postponed

 

The Ministry of Finance has intimated through a notification that the effective date of the Sea Cargo Manifest and Transhipment Regulations 2018 has been shifted to March 1, 2019. As such, the existing cut-offs will continue to be in effect until then.

 

The new regulations make it compulsory for shipping lines, exporters and importers to adhere to the defined timelines for the cargo manifestation for imports arriving in India and for exports out of India and the transhipment via Indian ports.

 

An APL advisory has called on the trade to begin to make the necessary preparations to meet the regulations by the new implementation date of March 1.

 

 

Imports to India: Shipping lines are required to submit the Import Manifest details to Indian Customs prior to vessel departure from last port of call before calling India, for all containers which are going to discharge at any port in India, or are discharged for transhipment at any of the ports in India.

 

To adhere to these timelines, the advisory requested that all customers provide details of House B/L 4 days before vessel calling the last port of call before India, and details such as CFS nomination, Direct Port Delivery intimation, shipment parties details and all other manifest details be provided 3 days before vessel calls the last port of call before India.

 

Exports from India: Shipping lines are required to submit Export Manifest details to Indian Customs prior sailing of vessel from India port of loading, for all containers which are loaded on a said vessel from India.

 

To adhere to these timelines, the advisory has requested that all customers submit the original shipping bill with Let Export Order (LEO) to operations/surveyor 48 hours prior the estimated time of arrival (ETA) of the vessel. For shipments originating from ICD, the Shipping Bill/Transhipment Receipt (TR) with LEO should be submitted 24 hours prior loading of containers on train/truck at ICD.

 

With multiple ports in India, there is a possibility that this revised ‘general’ export cut-off may not apply to specific locations. In this regard, the cut-off for each of its services calling India is being reviewed and will be shortly updated, the advisory said.
