Chilean Customs Authority has re-enforced the regulation that all Bills of Lading (BL) with destination or transit via Chile must include complete name, address and phone number and /or e-mail for shippers and . The same instruction is valid for Notify and Second Notify if they are listed.
According to the new requirement, the description of goods must allow a clear identification of the cargo as well as the terms of payment (prepaid / collect). In addition, the Tax Id identifier for the Chilean consignee must be shown. Currently penalties are not being assessed for non-compliance, however they may begin at any time if the regulations are not followed.
Please be guided accordingly. If you have any questions please contact RCL Agencies representative at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 973-779-5900.
