Update Customs (Prohibition of Import & Export)

Dear esteemed members,

 

Update on Customs (Prohibition of Exports) Order 2012 and Custom (Prohibition of Imports) Order 2012

 

The recent roadshow conducted by MTIB with regards to the implementation of Customs (Prohibition of Exports) Order 2012 and Custom (Prohibition of Imports) Order 2012 (hereinafter collectively referred to as “the Customs Order 2012) has caught the industry by surprise.

There are also a rumour that the requirement for import and export license for furniture products and furniture components has been implemented.

Mr. Richard Ko, Secretariat General of MFC led a delegation to a meet with Secretary General of Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities (MPIC), Y.Bhg. Datuk M. Nagarajan and MTIB Director General Dr. Jalaluddin Harun. 

Datuk M. Nagarajan assured that Export License will NOT be required for exporting furniture. However, if furniture exporters would like to apply for the MYTLAS License, registration with MTIB is still required. 

Meanwhile, furniture is exempted from Import License. However, the import of round logs, baulks and plywood will require Import License and legality documents from source country. This regulation is to fulfil the Timber Legality Assurance System (TLAS) requirements.

The authorities has acknowledged the concern of the industry and shall new implementations be considered, the MFC will be called upon for consultation and will act in the best interest of the industry.

各位尊敬的会员,

 

2012年海关关税条例和2012年“有关禁止进出口”的海关条例进展

 

近期马来西亚木材工业局(MTIB)举办的说明会上,阐明有关2012年海关关税条例和2012年“有关禁止进出口”的海关条例时,提及进出口家具产品及配件,需开始申请进出口准证的说法,引起业者的关注。同时,市面上也出现类似传闻,令业者深感忧虑。


为此,总会数位理事在秘书长许烺裕的率领下,上周五会晤种植与原产部秘书长
Datuk M. Nagarajan以及MTIB局长Dr. Jalaluddin Harun,针对此事进行讨论。

在会议上,Datuk M. Nagarajan已澄清,家具出口皆无需申请进出口准证,惟有家具出口商使用MYTLAS执照,才需要向MTIB提出申请。

在家具进口方面,业者也无需MTIB申请进口制造,惟原木(logs)、方木(baulks)及合板(plywood)进口,才需要向MTIB申请进口执照。业者需向木材生产国供应商取得合法性认证文件,以符合木材合法性验证系统(TLAS)的要求。

当局已获悉行业的担忧,并承诺一旦有任何新的举措,必须先咨询马来西亚家具总会。
