The secretariat has a labor force of more than 300 headed by the Secretary-General. The Secretary-General is chosen by the Assembly and holds his post for a length of 4 years.

 

Occasions and Awards By IMO (IMO 2020)

 

The worldwide sea the association likewise puts together a few occasions and grants to expand mindfulness about the oceanic business and perceive the individuals who have made a critical commitment.

 

A portion of the headliners and grants by the global oceanic association (IMO) are:

The significant regions of concern, which the International oceanic association has had the option to bring under guideline, have been the counteraction of mishaps, setting up wellbeing principles for ships and different vessels (counting plan and materials) for the part states to keep, keeping up adherence to the setup arrangements of security and security, the anticipation of contamination, and other avoidable human debacles.

 

IMO additionally encourages specialized co-activity among part states, setting up a tryout and checking plan for these principles, norms lastly observing liabilities and pay if there should be an occurrence of penetration of any of these guidelines.

Article source: https://www.aayaat-niryaat.com/what-is-rodtep-merchandise-export-scheme/ 

Cabinet approves RoDTEP merchandise export scheme for “Remission of Duties and Taxes on Exported Products (RoDTEP)” to boost exports Scheme for enhancing Exports to International Markets To make Indian exports cost competitive and create a level playing field for exporters in International market RoDTEP merchandise export scheme is WTO compliant, will reimburse taxes/duties/levies at the central, state and local level, which are currently not being refunded To give a boost to employment generation in various sectors Items will be shifted in a phased manner from existing scheme MEIS to RoDTEP with proper monitoring &audit mechanism Posted On: 13 MAR 2020 4:54PM by PIB Delhi The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has given its approval for introducing the Scheme for Remission of Duties and Taxes on Exported Products (RoDTEP) under which a mechanism would be created for reimbursement of taxes/ duties/ levies, at the central, state and local level, which are currently not being refunded under any other mechanism, but which are incurred in the process of manufacture and distribution of exported products. This scheme is going to give a boost to the domestic industry and Indian exports providing a level playing field for Indian producers in the International market so that domestic taxes/duties are not exported. Under the Scheme, an inter-ministerial Committee will determine the rates and items for which the reimbursement of taxes and duties would be provided. In line with “Digital India”, refund under the Scheme, in the form of transferable duty credit/electronic scrip will be issued to the exporters, which will be maintained in an electronic ledger. The Scheme will be implemented with end to end digitization. The refunds under the RoDTEP scheme would be a step towards “zero-rating” of exports, along with refunds such as Drawback and IGST. This would lead to the cost competitiveness of exported products in international markets and better employment opportunities in export-oriented manufacturing industries. In line with the vision of the Prime Minister, various export oriented industries are being reformed and introduced to better mechanisms so as to increase their productivity, boost exports, and contribute to the overall economy. Salient features: At present, GST taxes and import/customs duties for inputs required to manufacture exported products are either exempted or refunded. However, certain taxes/duties/levies are outside GST and are not refunded for exports, such as VAT on fuel used in transportation, Mandi tax, Duty on electricity used during manufacturing, etc. These would be covered for reimbursement under the RoDTEP Scheme. The sequence of introduction of the Scheme across sectors, prioritization of the sectors to be covered, degree of benefit to be given on various items within the rates set by the Committee will be decided and notified by the Department of Commerce (DoC). The rebate would be claimed as a percentage of the Freight On Board (FOB) value of exports. A monitoring and audit mechanism, with an Information Technology based Risk Management System (RMS), would be put in to physically verify the records of the exporters. As and when the rates under the RoDTEP Scheme are announced for a tariff line/ item, the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS) benefits on such tariff line/item will be discontinued.

What Custom house agent (CHA) does in Import clearance

Being custom clearance agent is just like any other profession, but is more similar to lawyer as custom has their own laws and process which must be followed by the importers and exporters. So what it takes to become Custom house agent we will discuss that another time. Today will see what customer house agent do to clear the imported goods from custom department.

ARTICLE BY

What Custom house agent (CHA) does in Import clearance
JAINIK MAKWANA ( Customer Services and Import executive @ CKB Group)

First of all, CHA Receives original documents like bill of lading, certificate of origin, certificate of analysis, freight certificate, insurance certificate, and many other, it is depending on what type of goods you are importing. Once such documents are received he checks whether all the documents are proper like goods details, invoice details, currency details, incoterms, under which type of scheme customer wants to get benefit of duty free imports as there are many schemes for duty free import like MEIS license, re-export bond, under EPCG scheme and many others.
What Custom house agent (CHA) does in Import clearance

Once all documents verify and seems correct, he checks with shipping line the estimated arrival of shipment. Here onwards two process work simultaneously:

1)       Custom clearance process

2)       Delivery order collection process


1)      Custom clearance process


First CHA will prepare checklist with help of bill of lading, Commercial invoice, certificate, duty benefit certificate like EPCG, MEIS, re-export Bond. As said earlier this are necessary documents for clearance of goods at custom department.
Once checklist prepared he will send for approval from importer to take importer in faith that all details are correct and once importer or consignee approved it CHA will do process of filling the Bill of entry on customs website ICEGATE. (Bill of entry is the document which is consist of all details regarding goods and its approval from custom departments that documents is clear under all the laws and its legalised to use)

Once Bill of entry filed, CHA will approach respective port or ICDs custom departments, with physical original documents and as custom proceed itself may be goods approves for clear or shipment will be examined by custom directed laboratory for verification of goods. After clearance given by custom department CHA receives Final Bill of entry and shipment gets out of charge.

2)      Delivery order collection process


Along with that CHA start approaching shipping line for required documents to collect delivery order from shipping line (delivery order is document which is necessary to take authority of the goods once you make payment to shipping line they will hand over the ownership of goods to authorised owner).

Delivery Order collection process are different from one shipping line to another line. But here we will some are common documents which required by all shipping line generally, original bill of lading, if shipment is unloaded at owner's premises then factory de stuffing bond on legal stamp paper along with notarised and bank as guarantor. Some shipping line needs security cheque as security for any damage to container while loading /unloading and shipping of container from one place to another. Sometimes if forwarder involve then it also needs house bill of lading which is of forwarders BL.

Once all the necessary documents arranged CHA approach for shipping line invoice payment. Along with payment details he shares required documents to shipping line, once the payment and required documentation confirmed by shipping line they will provide delivery order and then consignee or importer can take delivery of goods once it is out of charge from custom department.

Hope you might get basic of what is custom import clearance process. It might sound easy but there are laws and guidelines which must be followed while clearance otherwise it can be penalised with charges by custom department.
