Peru Import Regs.: Licenses

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 6:56 am

Supreme Decree No. 058-2005-EF of 10 May 2005 provides that the MEF is the sole entity authorized to "adopt measures intended to restrict or hinder the free flow of goods through the imposition of formalities, requirements or measures of any kind that affect imports. The Peruvian authorities have pointed out that since the Decree entered into force, every year the MEF has revised some 30 regulations that affect domestic or foreign marketing.

Only used vehicles not more than five years old (two years for some categories) may be imported. These vehicles must not have a mileage greater than that stipulated in the legislation and must not have "overturned or been involved in a head-on, lateral or rear-end collision". Moreover, they must have had left-hand drive from the time of manufacture and the emissions may not exceed the maxima specified in the legislation.

Import licenses have been abolished for all products except firearms, munitions and explosives; chemical precursors (used in illegal narcotics production); ammonium nitrate fertilizer (which has been used as a blast enhancer for terrorist car bombs), wild plant and animal species, and some radio and communication equipment. The following imports are banned: several insecticides, fireworks, used clothing, used shoes, used tires, radioactive waste, and cars over five years old and trucks over eight years old.
