Advice for businesses:

1. Exporters of waste and scrap and recovered (waste and scrap) paper or paperboard should note the change in the issuing authority for export licenses from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry to MITI, effective 1 May 2024.


2. Companies planning to export any goods to Israel should be aware of the prohibition under the amended order and the requirement to obtain a license from MITI for such exports.


3. Exporters of Rough Diamond should note the change in the issuing authority for export licenses from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry to MITI.


4. Businesses should review their export plans and ensure compliance with the amended order, including obtaining necessary licenses from the relevant authorities.
