A reminder on FMC requirements for NVOCCs

Please be reminded that according to FMC Regulations, Intermediaries that wish to act as an NVOCC for FMC-related shipments will need to comply with the relevant legal requirements. This includes maintaining a public tariff and holding a valid bond. For U.S-based entity, a license is also required.

For Entities that comply with the Commission’s regulatory requirements, the information can be accessed in the OTI list available in the FMC website. (https://www2.fmc.gov/oti/)

It is the responsibility of the NVOCC contract party to ensure that all bookings placed to USA and/or under the FMC regulated scope meet the requirements of the FMC. For any bookings placed without fulfilling FMC’s regulations, Hapag-Lloyd reserves the right to implement a penalty fee for mis/non-declaration of cargo. In addition, all additional costs, risks and liabilities related to the storage or movement of the cargo will be on the account of the cargo owner.

For best possible prevention efforts, please ensure the right contract and booking details at time of booking.

Please contact your local Hapag-Lloyd representative for more information.
