Brussels - After considerable efforts by BIR and its Indian members and in particular the BIR Ambassador to India in promoting necessary changes regarding the controls of imports into India, the Indian Ministry of Environment and Forest makes improvements that will allow traders to provide their services to their clients, the "actual users", having registered with the State Pollution Control Board. Also the new Indian rules allow both inspection agencies "certified by the exporting country" and inspection and certification agencies "approved by the Director General of Foreign Trade" to provide exporters with pre-shipment inspection certificates where required.>
BIR will keep its members informed on important future developments.
