30 September 2021 – The acquittal process of bonded and transit goods has been enhanced. The information previously published in SC-TR-01-02 and SC-TR-01-03 has been inserted in SC-CF-54 and SC-CF-55 respectively, if it is still relevant to the new acquittal process.
Customs will, on a risk based approach, stop goods that are in bond or in transit through South Africa and request supporting documents. A Documentary Inspector will forward the case for a physical inspection. The case will then be conditionally released. Proof that the goods were exported from South Africa or has left the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) must be uploaded by the declarant to the case within thirty (30) days.
The completion of declaration manual (SC-CF-04) and its annexures have been re-numbered and is included as annexures in the external clearance declaration policy (SC-CF-55). The Facility Code List SC-CF-04-A08 has been renumbered as SC-CF-19-A02 and incorporated into the external registration, licensing and designation policy (SC-CF-19).
The printing of CN1 and CN2 at land-border posts are no longer part of the process.
The annexures are attached to external policies.
