In order to monitor all Côte d’Ivoire volumes, the Office Ivoirien des Chargeurs (OIC – the Ivorian Shippers Council) has introduced a

Bordereau de Suivi de Cargaison (BSC) – a cargo tracking note. Custom clearance is impossible without the BSC, and cargo can not be delivered.


BSC can be issued with the following documents:

  • Bill of lading
  • Commercial Invoice
  • Certificate of Origin
  • Customs Declaration
  • Insurance Copy
  • FDI document (If the FDI number is not on the Insurance copy.)


  • Failing to submit the BSC certificate, the cargo cannot be cleared and will be returned to its origin.
  • Customs Declaration amendments are subject to a fine of 2500 USD per Bill of lading. This amount will be debited to the agency that requests the correction.

Notice: You may cancel the process anytime during the CTN Application.

What Products are Banned from being Imported into Ivory Coast?

  • Animals and animal by-products from areas affected by epizootic diseases and plants from areas affected by epiphytic disease.
  • Some distilled beverages, pornography, and gambling machines
  • We do not provide ECTN certificates for any illegal product or equipment.
