Ivory Coast – Abidjan – BSC Waiver

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 not possible without the BSC and cargo can consequently 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, cargo cannot be cleared and will be sent back to  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.
