Bangladesh Guidelines for Importers

Introduction

Rev. 26-9-12

The Government of Bangladesh has announced the introduction of the mandatory pre shipment inspection programme effective 15th February 2000 for products being imported into Bangladesh. This means that in order to import all goods (there is no floor value for Bangladesh) except those identified as exempt, prohibited or restricted (please see below), Importers in Bangladesh will be required to complete an IOF (Inspection Order Form) or Inspection Information Form (IIF), prior to the goods being shipped from their overseas Exporter. The National Board of Revenue Government of Bangladesh to undertake a mandatory PSI programme to issue CRFs for the related Customs Authority from the countries of Block E have appointed Intertek (See Appendix C for the list of countries) The country from where the goods are being shipped determines allocation to the PSI companies. Importers will be able to obtain the blank Inspection Order Form or Inspection Information Form (IIF) from their nominated Bank. Importers should return their completed IOF or IIF to their nominated bank. The Intertek office in Dhaka will make the necessary arrangements with their overseas Intertek offices for inspection prior to export. Intertek is at the disposal of all Importers and other economic agents in order to provide whatever additional clarifications may be required.

Frequently Asked Questions


How do I start the process?
Blank copies of the Inspection Order Form (IOF) or Inspection Information Form (IIF) are available with this document in Appendix D or from the L/C Issuing Bank in Bangladesh. You should complete and return to the same bank with a copy of the proforma invoice, order, or the like and letter of credit (obligatory for each consignment), fully detailing the goods to be imported along with their individual unit prices (showing FOB & freight charges). The Importer must nominate Intertek when opening the Letter of Credit. The Letter of Credit shall contain a condition to the effect that Intertek endorse the invoice and packing list issued by the seller of the goods. A suggested L/C clause is given in Appendix E. A copy of the Letter of Credit, Inspection Order Form and other documents shall be sent by the concerned branch of the bank to the local office of Intertek. If the information contained in any of the three documents, (L/C, Proforma invoice, Inspection Order Form) is not correct, or is incomplete, it will be rejected and must be corrected. PLEASE NOTE: THE PROFORMA INVOICE MUST CONTAIN AN INVOICE NUMBER AND DATE OF ISSUANCE, NAMES OF THE IMPORTER AND EXPORTER, AND DETAILED QUANTITY AND DESCRIPTION OF GOODS INCLUDING BRAND NAMES. Contact with the Exporter will be made via our RFI (Request for Information) letter and must be responded to promptly. 3 working days advance notice are necessary to arrange the inspection. Simultaneous to the inspection being carried out, the Issuing Office will review pricing and coding information. We recommend that the Exporters final documents be sent to the Issuing Office as soon as they are available. Assuming that the results of PSI are satisfactory, we will certify and return the Exporters final invoice and packing list. The original and copies of the Clean Report of Findings will be sent to Bangladesh Customs via the Liaison Office in Dhaka.

How do I calculate my inspection fee?


The Government pays the Intertek inspection fee. However, the Government will apply a levy of 1% of the assessed CIF value to the Importer at the time of Customs clearance. If an inspection fails and a Non-Negotiable Report of Findings is not issued, the Exporter will be responsible for the cost of re-inspection.

What will happen if my goods arrive without having been inspected?


There is no provision for Destination Inspection in the new SRO 255Ain/2002/1973/Sulka, dated September 19th 2002, and its amended SRO: 138-Ain/2008/2188/Sulka, dated: June 5th 2008.

What happens if Intertek find an error in my documents?


Should Intertek find an error that prevents them from completing inspection services, they will return your documents to the L/C opening bank by 24 hours for correction.

What do I do after obtaining the clean report of findings?


The original Clean Report of Finding will be sent to the relevant Customs House and a copy Clean Report of Findings will be sent to your L/C issuing Bank from Intertek Bangladesh. This will enable you to clear your goods from Customs.

Are any goods exempt from PSI?


Yes. Please refer to the list shown in Appendix A and B.

Are any goods prohibited or restricted from PSI?


Yes, the full list of Controlled goods is published in the Bangladesh Import Policy Order. (See Appendix G)

What happens if problems are discovered with the consignment during the inspection process?
If discrepancies and other anomalies are detected, either during the physical inspection of the goods or during the documentary review, and these anomalies are not corrected, Intertek will issue a NonNegotiable Report of Findings. This will prevent the clearance of the goods in Bangladesh. If the anomaly is corrected, the Non-Negotiable Report of Findings can be cancelled and replaced with the Clean Report of Findings.

Are Partial Shipments allowed?


Partial Shipments are allowed only if clearly stated on the Letter of Credit.

How is pre-shipment inspection organised?


Upon receipt of the Inspection Order Form or Inspection Information Form (IIF) and supporting documents from the Importer via the bank, the Intertek office in Bangladesh will verify the documentation and organise the inspection in the country of supply. The Intertek office located nearest to the named Exporter, will contact them to arrange inspection. A compete list of our regional Intertek offices are provided in Appendix F.
