RCP exports to Indonesia to resume in January?

12 Dec 2019 − 

Stakeholders in recovered paper markets hope exports to Indonesia can be resumed as of January next year.

Industry insiders told EUWID that a final draft of regulation 84/2019 has been submitted by the Indonesian Ministry of Trade. Among the provisions important for European exporters, this regulation would allow transhipments of sealed containers into Indonesia.

Opinions are divided on whether a contamination cap of 0.5 per cent or 2 per cent will be applied. In either case, authorities appeared ready to replace the 0 per cent contamination threshhold bandied about since the spring with a more achievable cap, insiders told EUWID.

However some sceptical voices are still to be heard: "These rules can be thrown out or redrafted - and have been in the past - in the blink of an eye. We'd rather wait and see how the final decision will turn out," a market expert said.
