JP24: Japan's Advanced Rule (AFR)
On March 30, 2012, a bill to amend part of the Customs Tariff Law had passed establishing the Advance Filing Rules (AFR) for Japanese imports. The amendment set the requirements for a vessel operator or a NVOCC to electronically submit to the Customs information on maritime container cargoes to be loaded on a vessel intended to entry into a port in Japan, in principle no later than 24 hours before departure of the vessel from a port of loading. The ruling was implemented in March 2014.
