Import ban

Regulation 58/M-DAG/PER/12/2010 by the Ministry of Trade introduces new import provisions for used capital goods. Compared to previous regulation 63/M-DAG/PER/12/2009, the regulation added eight 6-digit HS codes to the list of used capital goods that may be imported.

The regulation also adds Hospital Equipment Providers to the list of companies allowed to import the specified used capital goods (art. 2(2)d) upon receiving a recommendation from the Nuclear Energy Supervisory Agency (art. 3(4)d). This liberalisation was later removed again by regulation 127/M-DAG/PER/12/2015 on 1 February 2016 (see related state acts).

The regulation came into force on 1 January 2011.

It should be noted that used capital goods not listed in the regulation may be also imported as long as they fall "in the framework of export and investment development, including industrial relocation activities [...], infrastructure development, and for export purposes" and obtain an approval from the Ministry of Industry.
