On 17 January the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (Itac) invited applications for permits under rebate item 460.11/00.00/01.00 to the Customs and Excise Act, 1964, on used overcoats, car-coats, raincoats, anoraks, ski jackets, duffle coats, mantles, three-quarter coats, greatcoats, hooded caps, trench coats, gabardines, padded waistcoats and parkas (but no other clothing articles), classifiable in tariff headings 61.01, 61.02, 62.01, 62.02 and tariff subheading 6309.00.13. Comment is due by 07 February.
According to Itac, it is imperative that new importers acquaint themselves and comply with the interim guidelines, rules and conditions pertaining to the rebate item concerned, which together with the application form is available on ITAC’s website at www.itac.org.za, before applying for the permit.
Note: Goods imported under this rebate item require both rebate permits and import permits. It is therefore advisable that permits in relation to rebate provisions, which are subject to a permit being issued by Itac, be applied for and received before the goods concerned are cleared.
