Bukina Faso Shippers Council declared that effective in 2001 that all cargo destined for Burkina Faso must have a Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) or Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (ECTN). Some shipping lines may not load cargo without the CTN number. Cargo arriving without a Cargo Tracking Note may be subject of fines and delays.
Cargo Tracking Notes will not be issued at discharge port.
- Submit the required documents by email or online submission.
- You will be sent a draft and an invoice, typically within the same day.
- Once your payment has been received and you approve the draft, a validation (URN) will be sent.
- The Unique Registration Number (URN) must be placed on the Final Bill of Lading.
- Due to a change in the validation process, please allow 3-5 days from initial request to final validation.
- The CTN must be validated within 5 days of the vessel sailing. Any ECTN requested more than 5 days after sailing will be considered invalid at the discharge port. No regularization at destination port.
- Since the CTN is validated by the authorities in the destination country, the process from submitting a request to final validation can take 3-5 days.
Below are the required documents for this certificate:
– Commercial Invoice
– Freight Invoice (required if the freight amount is not specified on commercial invoice)
– Packing List
– Vehicle Title (if applicable)
