MYANMAR: Used Machinery Import Regime Extended Until End of 2018
The scheme to allow the import of used machinery for use in a manufacturing project in Myanmar has been extended until the end of 2018. Such imports must be originated from developed countries and arrive in Myanmar as sea freight. Further, they must not be more than 10 years old and must be still feasible for use for at least 70% of their original useful life.
Applicants should clearly state details of the machinery to be imported, including brand name, capacity, year of manufacture, type of fuel used, as well as the country of origin. They are also required to submit a recommendation letter issued by Myanmar’s Directorate of Industrial Supervision and Inspection as well as a document certifying that the intended imports are in running condition in their country of origin. All imports of used machinery are subject to inspection for verification of their declared credentials upon arrival in Myanmar.
