Subject: Amendment in import policy conditions under ITC (HS) 4 digit code 3808.
S.O.

“3. Under Section  of the Insecticides Act, 1968 all chemicals intended to be used as insecticides, rodenticides, fungicides, herbicides etc. [referred to as ‘insecticides’ under the Act] require mandatory registration for import. In cases, where the ‘insecticide’ is imported for non-insecticidal purpose, an import permit is necessary from the Registration Committee under the Department of Agriculture and Cooperation. The Registration Committee while granting registration or a permit for import of an insecticide spells out the conditions for import which inter alia, may include reference to the source of import. No ‘insecticide’ can be imported from a source other than that specified on the certificate of registration or the permit, as the case may be. In addition, the Registration Committee may issue regulatory guidelines from time to time with respect to safety, efficacy, quality etc. which warrant full compliance from importers.”
2. Effect of this Notification: The policy provisions under the Insecticides Act, 1968 for import of insecticides under EXIM code 3808 of Chapter 38 in ITC (HS), 2012 – Schedule – I (Import Policy) are being notified.
