Carriers who want to use FRA-OS/ Import must register with FRA-OS/ Import.
Carriers who want to qualify for the right to present to customs must register in FRA-OS/ Import in a specially designated database ("White List")!
1:1 referencing - the procedure
These carriers are authorized to perform the presentation of shipments in a customs warehouse on airport property by means of a so-called customs warehouse at airport procedure. The authorization must be confirmed by the airline’s CHA in each case. Afterwards, the authorized party automatically receives the import data record from FRA-OS/Import.
Many carriers already send so-called "transshipment lists" using FAIR@Link. In the future, the request for the import data record will also be made using these lists. This means that the data record will only be available if it has been requested and confirmed by the airline or its CHA. Of course, the carrier can also authorize his service provider to access the data record by means of the transshipment list. This makes the transshipment list even more important and, because of its new/additional function, it will in future be called a "procedural message." As soon as the data record is assigned, the carrier can begin the presentation process and the CHA is notified about who will be collecting the goods, or whether the CHA will need to present the goods on the carrier’s behalf.
As an alternative to this procedure, the carrier can also send a message to FRA-OS via EDI, or access the platform via the web.
Since the presentation can be made not only by the airline’s CHA but also by the carrier, customs will not be exactly sure where the goods are located for several hours after landing. Therefore, customs requires traceability of shipments in the form of real-time status updates from all parties who come into contact with the shipment - starting with the ground handling service that unloads the aircraft.
