PUBLIC NOTICE NO. 79/2017
Subject: Import of Goods falling in CTH 3808 under Insecticide Act, 1968-reg.
Attention of all Importers, Customs Brokers, Members of the Trade and all person concerned is invited towards non submission of Registration Certificate/Import Permit from the CIB under Insecticide Act, 1968 and produce the same to Customs.
Import of Insecticides/Pesticides are subject to the provisions of Insecticides Act, 1968. As per provisions of Section 9 of Insecticide Act, 1968 , no insecticide are allowed to be imported without a valid certificate of Registration or an import permit issued by the Secretary Central Insecticide Board & Registration Committee under his signature and office seal. Goods classified under CTH 3808 are freely importable only when importer is registered with CIB&RC and the goods are not prohibited for import under Insecticide Act, 1968. Hence all concerned importers are therefore, required to obtain Registration/Import Permit from the CIB under Insecticide Act, 1968 and produce the same to Customs.
However, last few months an increasing trend has been observed that importers have either submitted their request before Registration Committee to get RC/IP or they are yet to apply to get RC, whereas the goods have already arrived at port. Importers then start requesting to warehouse their goods as their CIB NOC is pending.
Goods classified under 3808 are not freely importable and allowed to import only when importer is registered with CIB &RC.
Henceforth, with effect from 01.07.2017 all importers have to compulsorily obtain Registration Certificate/Import Permit from the CIB&RC under Insecticide Act, 1968 before any import takes place or goods arrive at port. In case of non adherence to this the action shall be liable under Customs Act 1962.
Difficulty if any faced, in implementation of the prescribed procedure may be brought to the notice of the undersigned.
