Import ban

Regulation 77/M-DAG/PER/12/2012 by the Ministry of Trade introduces new import provisions for used capital goods. Compared to previous regulation 48/M-DAG/PER/12/2011, the regulation removed one 6-digit HS code from the list of used capital goods that may be imported.

Also, article 12(1) of the regulation 77/2012 stipulates that products 8471.41.10, 8471.50.10, and 8528.51.20 may only be imported into Bonded Zones. Previously, no such restriction was in force.

The regulation came into force on 14 December 2012.

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.

Import ban

Earlier in 2012, the Ministry of Industry regulation 14/2012 introduced the restriction that the imported used capital goods listed in the appendix of regulation 48/M-DAG/PER/12/2011 (see related state acts) and belonging to the HS categories 84 and 85 may not be older than 20 years upon imports (except products 8471.40.10 and 8531.20.00).

Article 8(2) of the regulation at hand (77/M-DAG/PER/12/2012) partially lifts that ban by specifying that these products may indeed be imported upon receiving a recommendation from the Ministry of Industry.

The regulation came into force on 14 December 2012.

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.
