Regulations for importation of used/refurbished equipment in Tunisia
A) According to the Tunisian Ministry of Commerce, there are no statutory prohibitions on the import of used/refurbished equipment. Imports of used equipment are subject to strict control by the Ministry of Industry, whose inspectors verify the proper functioning of all used equipment imports. Conversely, imports of new Industrial equipment are subject to approval by the
National standards institute (institut national de la Normalisation et de la propriete industrielle - innorpi).

B) There are no specific restrictions on individual categories of used/refurbished equipment, but each import is reviewed thoroughly and is admitted entry on a case- by-case basis.

C) While regulations are minimal, importation of used equipment into Tunisia is difficult as there is a strong preference for guarantees and after-sale service which comes with new equipment. Local banks which finance industrial products normally require that purchased equipment be new. Used equipment is sometimes imported as part of a foreign investor's contribution in kind to the capital of a project, but the purchase of used equipment for government funded projects is permitted only in very exceptional circumstances.
