The import of scrap to use as material for production through road and railway border gates will be banned in Vietnam from February 22, according to a circular freshly issued by the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The circular stipulates that dealers are not allowed to import scrap through road and railway border gates, and all import procedures have to be conducted in accordance with existing regulations.

The circular follows the Prime Minister’s directive No.27 dated September 17, 2018, on intensifying the management over the import and use of scrap as material for production.

Accordingly, the PM requested that the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment does not grant new certificates and extensions for entrusted importers of scrap and does not grant permission for scrap imports for preliminary processing.

The ministry should only consider the issuance of certificates for scrap importers who prove their demand for and capability of using scrap as material for production and meet the requirements for environmental protection.-VNA
