2. In line with para 5 of the Board’s circular, following provisions have been added in ICES in respect of durable containers which do not conform to the standard marine container dimensions, but which are intended for temporary import and eventual re-export (hereinafter referred to as “such durable containers”)

3. Import of such durable containers: When such durable containers are imported into India as per Notification No.104/94-Cus., dated 16.03.1994, these durable containers shall be required to be declared as an item in the Bill of Entry. To avail the benefit of duty exemption as per the above Notification, the importer shall have to execute a re-export (RE) bond.

4. Export/Re-export of such durable containers: At the time of export of such durable containers, the details of the containers shall be required to be declared in the SW_CTRL table of the same Shipping Bill as is filed for the export cargo in these containers (pl refer part 28 of the electronic SB Message Format). For export of such laden/empty durable container, following declarations will have to be made in the SW_CTRL table:

  • Serial No = Serial no of the durable container from 1 to n associated with export cargo (Multiple containers can be given for the same export item no using this field)
  • Control type code = DUC
  • Control Location = Port Code where BE was filed to import the durable containers
  • Control Start Date = BE Date
  • Control End Date = SB Date (same as the Shipping Bill)
  • Control Result Code = BE No.||BE inv no||item no (There should be double pipe delimiters after BE No and BE Inv No). BE Inv No and Item no correspond to the serial number of the invoice and item pertaining to the container as indicated in the Bill of Entry at the time of import. If it is not a case of re-export and the durable containers are being originally exported from India, Control Result Code can just be NORE
  • Control Result Remarks = Container Identification Number In case the durable container is directly being exported and is not a case of re-export, Control Result Code would be NORE and control location and Control Start Date can be left blank. The Shipping Bill message format published on ICEGATE website has been updated with the above details in part 28 (For reference, use this link ICES_1.5_CHA_Customs_Exports_Mesg_Format_Ver_2.8(08Nov2020).pdf (icegate.gov.in)). Changes have also been made in the data entry module of the service centre to capture the above details.
