FIATA Group Bond Programme

On 1 October 1998, the US Senate passed the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 1988 (OSRA) for signature by the US President. OSRA changed the 1984 US Shipping Act. The changes came into force on 1 May 1999.

FIATA has put in place a NVOCC Group Bond Programme for national associations and their members in line with the revised requirements of the US Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) regarding NVOCC Bond and Freight Forwarder Bond.

Please refer to to know more information about the programme, the current application and other pertinent regulatory information.
