Export licensing requirement

On 30 October 2015, export licensing requirements were imposed on "waste and scrap of primary cells, primary batteries and electric accumulators, spent primary cells, spent primary batteries and spent electric accumulators" falling under HS code subheading 8548.10. The subject good is not to be exported from South Africa without an export permit issued by the South African Department of Environmental Affairs. 

This intervention amends schedule 1 of the Government Notice No. R92 published in Government Gazette No. 35007 of 10 February 2012, see related measure.
