All shipments to and from Cameroon (except cargo in transit and/or in transshipment) must be covered by an “ELECTRONIC CARGO TRACKING NOTE (ECTN) / BORDEREAU ELECTRONIQUE DE SUIVI DES CARGAISON (BESC)”, also known as a cargo waiver. Corresponding cargo without an approved ECTN/BESC constitutes an offense against existing regulations and entails severe penalties from the authorities in Cameroon. The corresponding number of this certificate must be noted in the cargo documents (bill of lading and cargo manifest).

Required documents and information:
