Sub: – Partial modification in procedure of examination of waste paper consignments- Reg.
Attention of Officers of Customs posted at Mumbai Custom Zone-II is invited 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 stated that their consignments are being subjected to assessment & examination by RMS and each consignment is necessarily subjected to examination. Therefore, these importers are not able to avail facility of DPD. It is therefore decided to discontinue with the practice of examination of such consignments (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 Officers.
2. A detailed procedure for clearance of Waste Paper will be as under:
(i) At the time of assessment, the Group Officer 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 Officer’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.
