0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Passenger list message (PAXLST) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1. SCOPE


1.1. Functional definition

This Passenger List Message (PAXLST) permits the transfer of passenger/crew data from a Customs, Immigration or other designated authority in the country of departure to the appropriate authorities in the country of arrival of the means of transport.

Where national privacy legislation permits, and with the agreement of all parties involved, this message may also be exchanged between carriers and Customs, Immigration, Police or any designated authorities.

This transfer of data may occur upon departure from the sending agency and prior to arrival of the vessel/ flight at the receiving agency. This is to permit the designated authority at the place of destination to screen this data and take timely decisions related to the clearance of passengers and crew.

The transfer of data may also occur prior to departure, carriers may transmit passenger listings to customs and immigration for pre-arrival clearance.

Endorsement of this message by the Customs Cooperation Council does not necessarily mean endorsement by national Immigration or Police authorities, nor does it place any obligations on parties to apply the message.


1.2. Field of application

The Passenger list message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.

This message may be applied for international passenger movement and is not dependent on the mode of transport.


1.3. Principles

It is envisaged that the message will:

(a) facilitate the clearance of low risk passengers/crew.

(b) allow Customs, Immigration or police authorities to more effectively and efficiently concentrate resources on areas of highest risk.
