**UPDATE 28 OCTOBER 2015: Lybian authorities have suspended ECTN until further notice.***
For all shipments to and from Libya (all cargo in transit included), the shipper or his freight forwarder are required to issue an ECTN in the port of loading and submit it to Antaser for validation.
Each Bill of Lading must be covered by at least one ECTN and its unique number needs to be inserted in the Bill of Lading and Cargo Manifest under penalty of fines
The ECTN must be issued and validated at the loading port and are elemental for the import custom clearance upon arrival.
Cargoes not covered by a valid ECTN will not be cleared through the local Customs until presentation of the final ECTN and appropriate fines will be charged.
This new regulation takes effect as from November 1st 2015 (date of Bill of Lading) – as it was postponed from the first foreseen deadline of 1° October.
