Party Seizure Date Year Substances Traded Volume Importing Exporting Country Illegal Trade Details Action Taken Remarks
Armenia 5 February, 2024 HFC-134a and R-404A 4,692kg of HFC-134a and 8,774.5kg of R-404A From USA to Armenia (via Georgia) The shipment of HFC -134a and R-404A was unauthorised and not accompanied by the proper documentation, the latter fact being revealed through the iPIC consultation with Georgia which was a transit country. The Armenian company ABRO Prestige LLC submitted to Georgian authorities the document confirming that HFC -134a R-404A are not dual-use items. NOU Georgia shared this document with the NOU Armenia on 5 February 2024 requesting for the confirmation of the validity of the document. NOU Armenia informed the Georgian counterpart that it was the wrong document and that the company didn’t hold any HFC quota nor had ever applied for the import license, hence not authorised to import the mentioned substances to Armenia. The company ABRO Prestige LLC was first referred to the Ministry of Environment of Armenia to apply for the annual HFC quota, and then for the import license. On February 9, 2024, NOU Georgia shared the newly submitted import license, and NOU Armenia confirmed its validity. This case of unauthorised shipment was revealed through the iPIC consultations with Georgia, thus, reconfirming the efficiency of this mechanism.
Armenia 18 May, 2017 CTC 400 cylinders of CTC (carbon tetrachloride) of 500 ml each, 200 kg in total Importing country: Armenia. Exporting country: People’s Republic of China On 15 May 2017 TAG HEM LLC imported a container from the People’s Republic of China to the Republic of Armenia containing various goods including carbon tetrachloride, being unaware of the necessary proceedings for this special type of goods. Having checked the customs codes of all the goods, the customs officer requested for the import license for carbon tetrachloride. The importing company TAG HEM LLC applied to the Ministry of Nature Protection requesting for the import license but was rejected since the import of this substance was banned by the Government Resolution n 90-N. The Customs Service seized this product and released the rest of the products from the container. Unwanted goods were seized by the Customs Service for their further destruction. The Customs Service applied to the Ministry of Nature Protection requesting for the indication of the destruction facilities in the country. The Ministry of Nature Protection replied in the official communication that no destruction facilities were available in the country. Following this communication the Customs Service advised the company to re-export this product because no destruction facilities were available in the country. Currently the seized goods are stored in the customs warehouse.
