Sub: Partial modification in procedure of examination of waste paper consignments- Reg.
Attention of all the Importers, Customs Brokers, and the members of the Trade is invited with regard to the import of Waste Paper. There are many manufacture importers of Waste Paper who use it as a raw material for the manufacturing of paper. Such manufacture importers of “Waste Paper” were accorded with the DPD facility. These importers have complained that their consignments are being subjected to assessment & examination by RMS and each consignment necessarily subjected to examination. Therefore these importers have submitted that they are not able to avail facility of DPD. It is therefore decided to discontinue with the practice of examination of such consignment (Waste Paper) imported by DPD holding manufacturer importer at CFS and to allow them clearance directly from Port under DPD. Such consignments are to be examined by the Jurisdictional Central Excise Office.
2. A detailed procedure for clearance of Waste Paper will be as under:
(i) At the time of assessment, the Group AO will give DPD instruction instead of Examination Order.
(ii) At the time of assessment, the CB/Importer will produce a “No Use Bond” with a condition stipulated therein that all such containers cleared under DPD will be placed before jurisdictional Central Excise for examination before opening the Customs Bottle Seal of the Containers.
(iii) The Officer, Group will maintain a separate register for all such consignment and will close the said entries after receipt of jurisdictional Central Excise’s examination report.
(iv) The Officer, Group will place all such entries before AC/DC, Group which are not closed within one month.
(v) The facility will be liable to be cancelled on detection of misdeclration or any
other case detected against the importer.
(vi) Format of No Use Bond is enclosed as “Annexure-A”.
3. This is issued with the approval of the Chief Commissioner of Customs.
4. Difficulties, if any, faced in implementation of these instructions may be brought to the notice of the undersigned.
