CODENO 6 Permit expiration/clearance ready notice message  

TBG3 Transport

This specification provides the definition of the Permit expiration/clearance ready notice message (CODENO) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1.1 Functional definition
Notice specifying the cargo for which either the validity of the permits/Customs documents expires at short notice or for which regulatory Customs clearance has taken place.

This message is part of a total set of container-related messages. These messages serve to facilitate the intermodal handling of containers by streamlining the information exchange.
The business scenario for the container messages is clarified in a separate document, called: 'Guide to the scenario of EDIFACT container messages'.

1.2 Field of application
The Permit expiration/clearance ready notice message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.

1.3 Principles
Business area:
Pre- and on-carriage transport of containers/equipment

Sending functions include:
Container terminal, Inland terminal, Freight forwarder (including Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC))

Receiving functions include:
Shipping agent, Logistic Center, Freight forwarder

In the context of the 'Guide to the scenario of EDIFACT container messages' (as referred to at the start of section 1) the following guidelines, rules and functionality apply to this Permit expiration/clearance ready notice message:

*   In the case where the CODENO message is used as a Permit expiration notice the message contents can be uniquely identified by a combination of the following data elements:
- ordering customer, coded (NAD)
- ordering customer agent, coded (NAD)
- container announcement reference number (being the acceptance order reference number) (RFF)
In case the CODENO is used as a Customs clearance ready notice the message contents can be uniquely identified by a combination of the following message level data elements:
- carrier agent, coded (shipping agent) (NAD)
- carrier, coded (shipping line) (TDT)
- carrier's agent reference number (RFF)

*   In one message customs documents for several containers can be included.

*   One shipping line, one seagoing vessel, one sea voyage number and one shipping agent can be specified on message top level.

*   The document type, number, its date of issue and expiration can be given for each goods item which can be related to the corresponding containers by linking the goods item group (GID) to the container details group(s) (EQD) by means of the SGP segment.

*   For logistic purposes the pick-up address of Customs documents can be specified.

The transport sub-working group (D4) has developed recommendations for a harmonised implementation of this message through its subgroup ITIGG (International Transport Implementation Guidelines Group).
Users implementing the message are strongly advised to apply these recommendations, which may be obtained from the D4 secretariat.
