4.12 NAESB Standards (Version 1.8):

 

(a) NAESB Standard 0.3.3 (Version 1.8) states: If the Transportation Service

Provider (TSP) requests additional information to be used for credit

evaluation after the initiation of service, the TSP, contemporaneous with

the request, should provide its reason(s) for requesting the additional

information to the Service Requester (SR) and designate to whom the

response should be sent. The TSP and the SR may mutually agree to waive

the requirements of this standard.

 

(b) NAESB Standard 0.3.4 (Version 1.8) states: Upon receipt of either an

initial or follow-up request from the Transportation Service Provider

(TSP) for information to be used for creditworthiness evaluation, the

Service Requester's (SR) authorized representative(s) should acknowledge

receipt of the TSP's request. The TSP and the SR may mutually agree to

waive the requirements of this standard.

 

(c) NAESB Standard 0.3.5 (Version 1.8) states: The Service Requester's (SR)

authorized representative(s) should respond to the Transportation Service

Provider's (TSP) request for credit information, as allowed by the TSP's

tariff, on or before the due date specified in the request. The SR should

provide all the credit information requested by the TSP or provide the

reason(s) why any of the requested information was not provided.

 

(d) NAESB Standard 0.3.6 (Version 1.8) states: Upon receipt from the Service

Requester (SR) of all credit information provided pursuant to applicable

NAESB WGQ standards, the Transportation Service Provider (TSP) should notify

the SR's authorized representative(s) that it has received such information.

The TSP and the SR may mutually agree to waive the requirements of this

standard.

 

(e) NAESB Standard 0.3.7 (Version 1.8) states: The Service Requester (SR)

should designate up to two representatives who are authorized to receive

notices regarding the SR's creditworthiness, including requests for

additional information, pursuant to the applicable NAESB WGQ standards

and should provide to the Transportation Service Provider (TSP) the

Internet e-mail addresses of such representatives prior to the initiation

of service. Written requests and responses should be provided via

Internet E-mail, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties. The

obligation of the TSP to provide creditworthiness notifications is waived

until the above requirement has been met. The SR should manage internal

distribution of any creditworthiness notices that are received.

 

The TSP should designate, on its Internet website or in written notices to

the SR, the Internet e-mail addresses of up to two representatives who are

authorized to receive notices regarding the SRs' creditworthiness. The

SR's obligation to provide confirmation of receipt is met by sending such

confirmation to such representatives, and the TSP should manage internal

distribution of any such confirmations.

 

(f) NAESB Standard 0.3.8 (Version 1.8) states: At any time after the Service

Requester (SR) is determined to be non-creditworthy by the Transportation

Service Provider (TSP), the SR may initiate a creditworthiness re-evaluation

by the TSP. As part of the SR's re-evaluation request, the SR should either

update or confirm in writing the prior information provided to the TSP

related to the SR's creditworthiness. Such update should include any

event(s) that the SR believes could lead to a material change in the SR's

creditworthiness.
