Correction/amendment of Bill of Lading
How to correct Bill of Lading after submitting to bank? Can a Bill of Lading be corrected after reaching BL at overseas buyer? How to amend a bill lading after its release from shipping carrier?
Procedures and formalities to amend a Bill of Lading:
Carrier issues bill of lading to exporter on receipt of goods for carriage after completing necessary export customs formalities and procedures. Once after releasing Bill of Lading, the said document is sent to overseas buyer through the shipper’s bank. Normally, after releasing Bill of lading, the supplier sends a copy to consignee electronically, either by mail or fax.
The supplier may come to know the discrepancy in bill of lading once after releasing BL by the carrier. If the discrepancy in Bill of lading is found before submitting documents with supplier’s bank, the amendment can be effected by submitting all originals with the freight forwarder at load port who issued BL. The freight forwarder who carries goods can amend bill of lading, only on the basis of export shipping documents authorized by customs authorities. So, any details of addition, deletion, or correction are subjected to the declaration by exporter mentioned in shipping documents.
If any details to be amended have not been mentioned in export shipping documents, the carrier can not amend bill of lading. In such cases, exporter or his customs broker need to amend the said shipping documents with customs firstly and after completion of such amendment in shipping bill, he can approach shipping liner(carrier) to amend Bill of Lading accordingly.
If an amendment is required once after submitting original bill of lading with shipper’s bank, the overseas buyer can amend the said original bill of lading once after receiving BL from his bank through shipper’s bank. At this time, the consignee needs to approach the shipping liner’s counter part office at consignee’s location. The carrier (shipping company) at consignee’s location needs a ‘No Objection’ letter or message to amend bill of lading from his counter part at load port who issued Bill of Lading. In turn, the shipping company at load port confirms the details to his counterpart at destination regarding amendment of BL. The freight forwarder at load port provides ‘no objection’ up to the extent of information available in export shipping bill submitted by exporter. If consignee needs to amend any details other than the details declared in export shipping bill, the exporter (shipper) can amend shipping bill at load port with customs and submit such amended shipping bill with shipping company , so as to enable him to send a ‘no objection’ to amend such information to include in bill of lading.
