Honduras Import Regs.: Used Medical Equipment

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 5:54 am

Import regulations governing used and refurbished medical equipment do not indicate that they are subject to any special treatment. There are no restrictions or quotas for the importation of remanufactured, refurbished, rebuilt, nd/or used medical equipment. The import duties for used medical equipment is the same as that for new equipment. The appraised value for the above equipment is performed by the customs agent at the port of entry. The import duty applicable to the above items is 1% of its CIF value.

Public health institutions only purchase new medical equipment and supplies through public and international bids. According to the ministry of public health, the only used medical equipment acquired has been donated. Industry representatives of medical equipment importers do not foresee the Honduran market as a best prospect for used medical equipment. Private hospitals, clinics, and distributors import new equipment. Used medical equipment is purchased only when requested by their clients or received as a donation.
