Subject: Implementation of the Hazardous Waste (Management, Handling and Transboundary) Rules, 2008 Second amendment to the said Rules.

Sir / Madam,

Please refer to the Boards instructions of even number dated 24.8.2009 and the Notifications No. S.O. 2447 (E) dated 23rd September, 2009 (copy enclosed) and S.O. (E) 1799 dated 21st July, 2009 issued by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) on the above mentioned subject.

2. In this regard, it is stated that the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) vide its O.M. F.No.23-76/2009-HSMD dated 1.10.2009 (copy enclosed) had clarified that the amendments introduced in the Notification dated 23.9.2009 should be read in continuation of earlier amendment of 21.7.2009. it is also stated that these amendments pertain to the category of Waste, which do not require either MoEF approval or DGFT licence, i.e. the waste products mentioned in Part B of Schedule III to the aforesaid Rules suffixed with ** (double asterisk), which shall be subject to the following condition:

Import permitted in the country by the actual users without any licence or restrictions or by importer registered with State Pollution Control Board on behalf of the actual user who shall furnish the details of such import and particulars of the actual users along with quantities to the concerned State Pollution Control Board, on a quarterly basis.

3. The MoEF has also stated that the import consignment of hazardous waste shall be accompanied by the shipment movement document i.e. Form 9 and the test report of analysis of the hazardous waste under import, from a laboratory accredited by the exporting country under Rule 16(5) of the aforesaid Rules. The amendment vide Notification dated 23.9.2009 seeks to provide an alternative to the test report by means of an pre-shipment inspection certificate issued by Inspection and Certification Agency approved by the DGFT.

4. However, as regards to the amended provision, permitting import by persons other than actual users on behalf of actual users since the State Pollution Control Boards may take some more time to complete the process of registration, they have requested to issue instructions to the Customs authorities to clear the consignments based on fulfillment of other conditions as stipulated in the Hazardous Waste (Management, Handling and Transboundary) Rules, 2008. 2/-

5. In view of the above, Board hereby instructs that the amendments introduced in the aforesaid Rules and the instructions of the MoEF vide their O.M.F.No.23-76/2009-HSMD dated 1st October, 2009 may be implemented by all the Customs field formations. Since the nodal officers would have been designated in each of the Commissionerates, they may be requested to liaise with the respective State Pollution Control Board for effective implementation of the above mentioned change.

6. The field formations as well as trade and industry may be suitably informed.

Yours faithfully,

(M.M. Parthiban)
Director (Customs)
