Ready for Another 24-Hour Rule?

June 28, 2013 — 1 Comment

logoLast month (May 2013), the Nippon Automated Cargo and Port Consolidated System (NACCS) released an updated version of guidelines for filing under the Japan 24-hour rule. As the main system for the online processing and procedures related to the new 24-hour rule, NACCS has been updating the guidelines and holding informational sessions across Europe, North America and China since early 2013.

Scheduled to go into force March 2014, Japan Customs and NACCS is encouraging shippers to begin looking at requirements and working towards compliance now. Penalties include Do Not Loads (DNLs) and fines up to 500 thousand JPY.

The NACCS has provided several good resources for the trade to use in familiarizing themselves with the Japan 24-hour Rule:

Therefore, South African shippers, exporters, and carriers of goods to Japan have a few more months to get their systems and processes in order to meet Japanese advance reporting requirements. For those already meeting US, Canadian and EU advance manifest reporting requirements this should not pose too much of a problem.
