An ECTN (Electronic Cargo Tracking Note) certificate is required for all shipments going to Libya.
Pre-Shipment Inspection for Libya
On the 10th May 2015 The Governor of the Central Bank of Libya published Resolution No.96 which requires all Libyan imports to include a Certificate of Inspection (COI). The pre-shipment inspection is used to confirm the cargo transported to Libya is the same cargo (in terms of quantity, quality and value) as described in the Letter of Credit. The Central Bank of Libya requires the Certificate of Inspection be presented on import for any shipments financed through a Letter of Credit.

Additional Information about ECTN Certificate
We are not able to create an ECTN number for Libya on forehand. Once the draft ECTN is approved, we can submit the ECTN for pre-validation to get the ECTN number. This ECTN number can be transmitted to the shipping line in order to obtain the required B/L number. For validation of the ECTN we need the final Bill of Lading.
A pre-validated ECTN should be completed and validated within 5 working days. If not, the ECTN will be cancelled. All costs involved will be for the applicant’s account.
