Bangladesh Guidelines for Exporters

Rev. 30-6-12

Introduction
In February 2000, the Government of Bangladesh approved new legislation, which made fundamental changes to the importation procedures to be followed in Bangladesh. Pre-shipment Inspection has become mandatory for all exports (as there is no floor value) except those identified as exempt, prohibited or restricted (please see below). Importers are required to complete a pre-shipment inspection order form (IOF) or Inspection Information form (IIF) for all imports subject to inspection. Upon receipt of the IOF from the Importer, Intertek will contact the Exporter and arrange inspection in the country of supply through their network of overseas offices. Upon satisfactory findings, Intertek will issue a Clean Report of Findings (CRF) to the related Customs Authority and certify the Exporter's Final Invoice and packing list. With effect from 1st July 2011, Intertek is one of four Pre-shipment inspection companies chosen to participate in the program and is responsible for exports supplied from the countries indicated in appendix C.

Frequently Asked Questions


What happens if I ship without inspection?
The Bangladesh Customs Authority will hold goods shipped without a Clean Report of Findings (CRF) and impose a penalty to the importer in order to release the goods. b) In case of import of all kinds of food and beverages, the manufacturing & expiry date shall clearly be embossed on each packages/container of such items. Separate printed labels relate to date(s) are not allowed to apply on packages/container. However, it shall not be necessary to mention the date of expiry in case of import of wine/liquor. Manufacturing and expiry date need to be written/printed on the container/packages of the raw materials of food/Beverage. However, this condition is applicable only for those raw materials, which became unsuitable to use after a limited time. c) For canned fish, the manufacturing - expiry date and net weight shall be embossed or shall be computer printed in permanent ink either in Bangla or English on each tin container. Separate printed labels relate to date(s) are not allowed to apply on the container. d) For the importation of protein concentrate (made from Bone meal/Meat meal or Meat and Bone meal) a veterinary certificate (conforming that the goods is free from Transmissible sopongiform Encephalopathy) need from the exporting country and it should be supplied with the shipping documents. e) It is important that the Importers name, address and Tax Identification Number (TIN) is clearly displayed on 2% the biggest box/package of the shipment only. Bulk commodity shipments and consignments with a value below USD 5000 are exempt from this requirement. If all packages are identical in size, then the labelling should be applied on 2% of the packages to be shipped. f) All toy products should be embossed with the child age suitability for use of the product. g) For the BSTI certified BDS products, you must provide us with valid test reports from an internationally approved surveyor which verifies that the product complies with the applicable product standards. (See BSTI list--Appendix D) h) The list of controlled goods can be found in Appendix E.

Are any goods exempt from inspection?


Yes, these are shown in Appendix A and B.

What do I have to do?


The Intertek office nearest to you will send you a Request for Information (RFI) letter. A prompt reply will start the PSI process. A unique reference number will be shown on the letter know as the RFI number (Example BDH-123456). Please quote the unique RFI number in all communications with Intertek as per above example. If any company other than the Exporter named on the Inspection Order Form or Inspection Information Form (IIF) is to request inspection or act in any way on your behalf, their authority to do so must be confirmed by you in writing.

Should I pack my goods prior to inspection?


Goods should be presented along with the export packaging, which will be used. Where packaging must be opened to perform physical inspection, repackaging will be observed at the time of inspection. Where goods are to be exported by full container load, Intertek is required to witness loading and seal the container with an Intertek seal. For this to be done, Exporters will be required to present goods for physical inspection at a time and place such that, upon the same visit, the Intertek Inspector may properly inspect the goods, witness container stuffing and perform sealing. At this time the Exporter or Exporters Agent will be required to sign the Inspectors Report confirming that the containers have been sealed. A photograph will be taken, where possible. The Inspection Report will be valid for ninety days. If goods are not shipped within ninety days a further inspection will be required at an additional expense to the exporter. If the Inspector must return to the site to witness stuffing and to seal the container, an additional charge will be made to the Exporter.

What is Customs Classification?


All goods are classified under a customs tariff code, which determines the rate of duty payable for the goods upon importation. Intertek is required to determine the correct tariff code in accordance with the requirements of the Bangladesh Customs Tariff book and all other relevant regulations published by the Government. The Bangladesh Customs Tariff is based on the Harmonized System (HS). Please note that part of our mandate with the Bangladesh Government is to assess and allocate the most applicable HS code for the goods, which we have inspected. Therefore, the HS code(s) allocated by us, may not necessarily be the HS codes quoted on your letter of credit.

Are there any specific inspection requirements?


There are a number of specific requirements required by the National Board of Revenue of the Government of Bangladesh, which are contained in the Import Policy Order 2006-2009. It is important that exporters and importers are familiar with the applicable product specific requirements as failure to comply may cause serious problems with regard to the production of any certificates. Key requirements are listed below: a) In all cases of import, the Country of Origin must be mentioned clearly on all outer packages, drums or containers as per Import Policy Order If no packaging, drum or container exists, the Country of Origin should be mentioned on the goods.

What is Customs Valuation?
The customs valuation or price verification undertaken by Intertek seeks to determine whether the price being charged by the Seller, as declared to us in the proforma invoice, corresponds within reasonable limits with export prices generally prevailing in the country of supply. Where the Exporter does not present freight and insurance charges to the IO, Intertek will assess values for customs valuation purposes only. The reference date for customs valuation/ price verification will be the date of the order or proforma invoice. Where our customs valuation/ price verification indicates that your prices are significantly below the reasonable limit for the export prices prevailing in the country of supply, you will be contacted and given an opportunity to comment. Our assessment of the export market price will only be amended if you can provide us with written information enabling us to change our opinion. Price data and all related information supplied to Intertek are held in the strictest confidence.

This certificate has to be from the manufacturer under their letterhead stating the actual price of the vehicle. Signed faxed documents are acceptable. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note that Intertek is not able to add specific remarks to the CRF, in order to satisfy individual L/C requirements. The CRF only bears remarks that have been requested by the Bangladesh Authorities.

What happens if I fail to present final documents?


Presentation of clean final documents should be made to Intertek as soon as they are available. Failure to do so may result in the issuance of a Non-Negotiable Report of Findings (NNRF) and a delay in the clearance of the Importers goods from Customs. In order to avoid problems, it is advisable that good final documents be presented to Intertek at the earliest opportunity.
