Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

Regulation 57/M-DAG/PER/12/2008 by the Ministry of Trade introduces new import restrictions compared to previous regulation 49/M-DAG/PER/12/2007. Importers of used capital goods for remanufacturing and reconditioning will have to fulfil a number of additional criteria to be allowed to import used capital goods (art.2(4)e-g). For instance, they will have to acquire a recommendation from the Ministry of Industry and provide a proof of order from the country of origin.

The regulation came into force on 1 January 2009 and was in force until 31 December 2009. However, the regulation from subsequent years all contained the restriction described above. Hence, this intervention continues to be classified as in force.
