The government of Ghana has reportedly suspended the implementation of the amended Customs (Amendment) Bill 2020 that bans the importation of accident and salvaged motor vehicles into the country.
This was disclosed in an interview by the Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders (GIFF) on Thursday though the government is yet to give full details about the suspension.
The act which was passed in March this year amends the Customs Act 2015 (Act 891) and was set to roll out on November 1, 2020.
Speaking to the CNR, however, the chairman of the Tema branch of the GIFF, Mr. Alex Asiamah, said he had been notified by the Finance Ministry through the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).
“So, the importers can go on with their business of importing such cars. So that’s the news at the moment. It is coming from the Ministry [of Finance], but through our sector commander, the Assistant Commander of Customs in Tema,” he told the CNR.
