Geneva, 15 August, 2013
Cotecna, one of the world’s leading international testing, inspection and certification companies, has been officially appointed by Indonesia’s KSO SCISI, to handle the inspection of Non-B3 waste paper shipments from the United Kingdom and Ireland to Indonesia, effective 19 August 2013. This is in addition to the Asia Zone (including the Middle East) currently handled by Cotecna.
As part of the country’s import verification program, KSO Sucofindo-Surveyor Indonesia (KSO SCISI), based in Jakarta, Indonesia, was appointed by the Directorate General of International Trade of the Ministry of Trade of The Republic of Indonesia to manage the verification of the country’s Non-B3 waste imports. KSO SCISI is a Joint Operation between two State owned companies, PT. Sucofindo and PT. Surveyor Indonesia, and acts as an independent surveyor for the verification of many other commodities within the country’s import verification program.
Effective 17 July 2012, the Trade Minister’s Decree 39/M-DAG/PER/9/2009 of 2 Sept 2009, requires all Non-B3 waste shipments to Indonesia to carry a Survey Report.
As a subcontractor of KSO SCISI, Cotecna will carry out verification and surveys of all Non-B3 waste exported from the Asia Zone (including the Middle East) and Non-B3 waste paper exported from the United Kingdom Zone (including Ireland) to Indonesia as per the above-mentioned Decree. This will include administration and field verification to provide information such as the description of the goods, the appropriate HS code, the date of shipment, and port of destination.
Robert Massey, CEO Cotecna said, “KSO SCISI continues to show its confidence in Cotecna by awarding the company the United Kingdom zone (including Ireland), in addition to the existing Asia zone (including the Middle East), for the Non-B3 waste contract. This further emphasizes Cotecna’s competence in the area of import verification services and is proof of Cotecna’s commitment to participate in the economic growth of Indonesia.”
All Indonesian Non-B3 waste importers should contact KSO SCISI in Jakarta.
