Proof documents/E.P.Copy
After sailing of the vessel, the shipping agent files export general manifest (EGM)

An EGM contains all details of the goods on board a vessel.

These details are no. of packages, name of exporter,gross weight,s/bill no., container no,rotation no. and port of destination.

The customs edi system maps this details against the details in the s/bill submitted by the exporter and if they tally, automatically an e.p.copy will be printed.

Though there is a time limit to submit complete manifest within 7 days of sailing, it is seen that shipping lines take upto 21 days to rectify simple mistakes of rotation no.,container no., etc and then submit the complete manifest as per p.n. 77 dt. 2/8/2010

If there are other errors like wrong no. of packages or gross wt. or even wrong s/bill no., e.p.copy is not generated till the amendment request is forwarded to the additional commissioner of customs (exports) and the process takes upto 60 days since sailing.

Sometimes the amendment requires declaration from the shipping lines, and they do not give this declaration in case of factory stuffed containers where they have loaded the containers prior to out of charge given by customs.

Such e.p.copies are generated only after penalty is levied by customs.
