Draft technical amendments to schedules of the Customs & Excise Act for comment

19 September 2022

The proposed amendments are technical in nature and will have no effect on the duty structure. The amendments are mostly due to requests received from industry or other government agencies.

The draft amendments are proposed in Part 1 of Schedule No. 1, Schedule Nos 4 and 6 to the Customs and Excise Act as follows:

  • Insertions of new 8-digit tariff subheadings under several Chapters in Part 1 of Schedule No. 1 relating to paper-, plastic- and rubber insulated. You can see the detailed changes here.
  • Part 2 of Schedule No. 4 as a consequence of amendment to rebate item 460.18/9001.10/01.06 You can see the changes relating to optical fibres here.
  • Deletion of Note 4(A) in Part 1D of Schedule No. 6 dealing with the temporary registration of Manufacturers of disinfectant using partially denatured or undenatured ethyl alcohol
