We would like to share with you an important information regarding HS code implement on the cargo manifest. There are examples of huge damages/fines (usd 300.000-usd 500.000) due to wrong declared HS code on cargo manifests, when the custom requests full inspection of the cargo and founds the cargo is different than the declared HS code/cargo description. As per the attached Turkish Ministery of Custom and Trade circular the fine is twice of the cargo value.
Importance of the matter increases on transit cargo, because it is more inspected than the local import Cargo.
1- All cargo in side the container have to be declared on the manifest,
2- Fore each cargo there must be a HS code writen,
3- All HS codes should cover the cargo correctly.
In the end we have to kindly inform you after above notification, We CSCL , effective today will keep you responsible from any damage, clause, fine will occur. All the costs will be debitted to you.
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation with us.
IF YOU ARE NOT THE CONCERNED PARTY, PLS FORWARD IT TO THE PIC.
