Manifest Amendment

Manifest Amendment

  • Manifest amendments involve making changes to details of already submitted manifest. The legal basis for manifest amendment is Section 24(4), (5) of EACCMA, 2004. It states as follows:

(4) The proper officer may permit the master or agent of an aircraft or vessel to amend the destination, ownership or status of goods specified in the report where a change in such destination, ownership or status is intended. 

(5) The proper officer may permit the master or agent of an aircraft or vessel to amend an obvious error in the report, to supply an omission, which in the opinion of the proper officer results from accident or inadvertence.
