According to a copy of the amendment received by SteelOrbis, India’s Director General of Foreign Trade recently added Mundra port to the list of sea ports where a pre-shipment inspection Certificate (PSIC) is exempted for imports of ferrous scrap, both shredded and non-shredded, coming from pre-designated “safe” countries. The countries include US, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and the EU. The cargoes for these countries are required to be accompanied by a certificate from the supplier or scrap yard authority confirming that each cargo does not contain radioactive materials or explosives.

The other exempt sea ports are Chennai, Tuticorin, Kandla, JNPT, Mumbai, Krishnapatham.  These ports have radiation and explosives checks through portal monitors and container scanners. Trans-shipments from the countries previously mentioned will not be given the same PSIC exemption allowance at the exempt ports.
