Hong Kong Introduces Mandatory E-Manifests

Hong Kong's Commerce, Industry and Technology Bureau announced on Monday that from June 16 the Government will accept manifests from ocean and river cargo carriers only in electronic form.

The majority of active carriers have reportedly made the necessary preparations for full migration to the use of electronic manifest services.

The HK authorities warned, however, that:

"For the few still to register, they must do so as soon as possible, unless they plan to use the service providers' service centres to convert paper manifests into electronic submissions."

There are at present two service providers for electronic manifest services, namely Global e-Trading Services and Tradelink Electronic Commerce. The carriers concerned can submit electronic manifests via one of these two providers.
