DGFT points non-declaration of chemicals and chemical reactions in manufacturing process in Appendix 4E
New Delhi, May 17 (KNN) Taking note of non-submission of applications with detailing on Chemicals and Chemical Reactions in the manufacturing process, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has asked applicants to submit complete documents for advance authorization applications on self-declaration basis.
DGFT said, “Applicants are requested to submit complete documents as provided in the Appendix 4E, containing technical details, chemical reactions and data sheet for advance authorization applications on self-declaration basis.”
In a communication to export promotion councils and trade bodies, DGFT said “Attention is invited to applications received under Para 4.04 and 4.07 of HBP by the Norms Committee-4 for Chemicals relating to fixation of ad-hoc norms.”
“The Committee has observed that a large number of applications, involving chemicals and chemical reactions are not submitted with complete Appendix 4E due to which technical experts are unable to examine the requests in entirety leading to deferment of a large number of cases and undue delay in processing of the requests”, DGFT stated.
In this context, the applicants are therefore requested to submit complete documents as provided in Appendix 4E which include step-wise manufacturing process, complete chemical reactions with molecular and structural formula and molecular weights along with stage wise % yields on molar basis, material balance, requirement and recovery of solvents, details of by-product/co-products formed, percentage purity of finished product, standard technical literature, etc., wherever applicable.
DGFT has asked the Regional Authorities to ensure that all relevant documents are forwarded to the Norms Committee on time so that the cases are processed in a time bound manner. (KNN Bureau)
