EXPORT CONTROL

Security laws and regulations require that exports at all carriers be controlled.

These laws prohibit shipments abroad or to an unauthorised entity, meaning a person or company placed under embargo (*) by an international organisation (UN, EU, US for example).

Chronopost, as an international carrier, must comply with these regulations and reserves the right to (i) cancel or interrupt the delivery, (ii) to provide the competent authorities with any information required and to apply the procedures required by these regulations, and this without any liability on the part of CHRONOPOST.

A parcel may be subject to a processing delay in the event where the sender and/or recipient or any third party concerned by this shipment is suspected of being affiliated with an organisation or person featured on the lists of unauthorised individuals.

Once any doubts have been removed, the parcel is placed back into the distribution network and delivered to the recipient.

However, if the doubts are confirmed, the delivery is seized and the procedures imposed by the competent authorities are applied; the parcel may either be destroyed, handed over to the authorities or be returned to the sender.

Any damages resulting from a delay or an interruption in the delivery as part of an export control may not be subject to a request for compensation.

For easy verification and to avoid any unnecessary holds, we recommend that you be as precise and detailed as possible when entering your information.

(*) Embargo: Administrative measure put in place to block the free circulation of an item
