ISLAMABAD: To transparent huge consignments of banned pieces from ports, the Federal Board of Income (FBR) has empowered the customs officers to direct delivery traces to re-export out of Pakistan any banned or limited items. The FBR has conveyed to the Creditors of Customs that numerous consignments containing banned or limited items are mendacity on the ports for very long time.
The Para 20 of the Import Coverage Order prescribes that banned pieces imported in business amounts can be re-exported on the expense of the importer or the delivery line. There’s no such corresponding provision within the Customs Act, 1969.
With a purpose to make delivery traces chargeable for re-export of such consignment and to harmonise the provisions of the Customs Act, 1969 and the IPO, Phase 82 has been amended, the FBR added.
Underneath the modification made within the Customs Act 1969, only if Collector of Customs might direct the importer or in case importer isn’t traceable, the delivery line to re-export out of Pakistan any items, banned or limited via a notification factor by way of the government, if the similar aren’t cleared or auctioned inside of 60 days of the date in their arrival, it added.
