6) Remarks  
a) Disbursements:  
  The Central Bank of Brazil (Circular Letter 3280 of March 9, 2005) does not allow ship agent to finance foreign ship owners or any other foreign company. Should any practice which is not according to the usual rules take place, the involved parties (owners and/or cargo traders and/or agents) will be summoned to appear before the aforementioned monetary authority to render account.

The Santos Port Authority does not handle a ship unless the agent shows vessel is economically solvent by advancing payment, presenting bank guarantee or both, failing which vessel is not authorized to berth.

Owners or disponent owners are to advance funds to agents on application to cover estimated ship’s disbursement account. If the owner fails to make such payment in full of any sums due to agent on application or against revised PDA and agent is compelled to advance funds, a charge of 6% (six percent) disbursing fee for a 30-day period or part thereof to cover interest and insurance will be assessed.

In any case full funds to cover revised estimated proforma to be remitted by owners to agents prior to applications of outward sailing pass before port authorities.
b) Minor Items Attendance Definition:  
  (when a C/P clause states that “Owners’ minor items are to be attended by agents without additional agency fee”, or similar provision)

Owners’ minor items attendance is defined as a type of work that does not interfere in the agent daily routine. Routine means the usual tasks done in which agents regularly do ships´ attendance in the port of Santos.

All items of this tariff are not to be considered as minors.
