Import licensing requirement

The regulation introduces a new import licensing regime. Previously, importers required product-specific import licenses as Registered Importers (IP) or Producer Importers (IT). With the new provisions in force, importers may use non-product-specific licenses API-U or API-P, respectively.

The products covered by the licensing requirement are listed in the appendix of the regulation.
