The Consignor authorises the Carrier to act as the Consignor's agent for purposes of export control and to complete all documents as may be necessary or desirable in connection with the provision of the Services subject that the Carrier shall not be liable for failure to act as the Consignor's agent in this regard.
The Carrier may (but without obligation to do so) advance any duties, taxes, imports, outlays or charges at any port or place in respect of the Consignment and the Consignor shall pay an amount equal to the amount paid by the Carrier in this regard.
