Effective January 29, 2016, all air shipments destined to the United States must be tendered with a written declaration stating that the shipper has reviewed all available documentation.  The shipper must also determine that none of the cargo being offered in the consignment or consolidation has originated in, transferred from, or transited through any point in Somalia, Syria, Yemen or Egypt.  Here is the exact wording:

  • “Name of entity” has reviewed all available documentation and has determined that none of the cargo being offered in this consignment or consolidation has originated in, transferred from, or transited through any point in Somalia, Syria, Yemen or Egypt.”
