Ministry releases guidelines on African Textiles Prints' imports

Feb '11
The Ministry of Trade and Industry on February 16, 2011 issued guidelines with regard to the import of African Textiles Prints.

Hanna Tetteh, Sector Minister, in a statement said that, the guidelines were aimed at providing an outline of the administrative procedures, which would help to curtail several deceitful trade practices like, evasion of import duty and other taxes, illegally copying patents and trademarks, under-invoicing, smuggling and inferior quality prints.

The guidelines which are to become effective from Monday, March 21, 2011, mentioned about the African Prints such as Super Real Wax, Java Print, Real Super Wax Block Print, Imitation Wax and Fancy Prints, which will be affected by the guidelines.

Further, the statement said that, it would be expected from all the importers of the African Prints that they adhere to these guidelines. All the importers of the African Prints are believed to be the firms duly registered with the Registrar-General's Department in accordance with the laws of Ghana with regard to carrying on such trade, the statement added.

In order to get their operations approved, these importers would be required to register themselves with the Ministry of Trade and Industry and even submit monthly returns detailing their African prints imports. As a part of the process the importers will have to register and submit their monthly returns with the Ghana Standards Board (GSB), and even furnish the GSB with a sample of the African Prints that they intend to import, for pattern approval.

A meeting of the screening committee including major stakeholders would be held at the GSB on last Tuesday of every month to approve the samples furnished by the importers for the purpose.

The guidelines further require that, proper labels should be attached to all the African Prints in accordance with the Ghana Labeling Regulation, LI 1514 (1992).

Also that, the imported African Prints should be placed in the category of "High Risk Goods" and 100 percent physical analysis should be undertaken for the same by the officials of the Ghana Revenue Authority's (GRA) Customs Division and the GSB.
