Convention on Facilitation of International Maritime Traffic

FAL Documents

The FAL Convention includes in its Standard 2.1 a list of documents which public authorities can demand of a ship and recommends the maximum information and number of copies which should be required.

IMO developed Standardized Forms for seven of these documents (updated FAL Forms are effective since 1 January 2018):

  • IMO General Declaration (FAL form 1) 

  • Cargo Declaration (FAL form 2) 
  • Ship's Stores Declaration (FAL form 3) 
  • Crew's Effects Declaration (FAL form 4)
  • Crew List (FAL form 5)
  • Passenger List (FAL form 6) 
  • Dangerous Goods (FAL form 7)
