Clean transport document
A receipt for goods without any adverse notation indicating damage or shortage, issued by a carrier. Goods covered by clean transport documents are said to be received in apparent good order and condition. Transport document bearing adverse notations are called variously claused, unclean or foul, and are the opposite of clean transport documents. There is no reason to show the word clean on the face of a transport document, as all transport documents without adverse notations are considered clean. See FCR Forwarder´s certificate receipt.
