Export Cargo

2. After matching the export declaration with the export manifest, the export declarations will be classified into 3 categories, C1, C2 and C3. C1 refers to exemption from document review and cargo examination; C2 refers to document review; and C3 refers to document review and cargo examination. For C2 or C3 types of clearance, customs brokers should submit hard copies of the declarations.
