Party Seizure Date Year Substances Traded Volume Importing Exporting Country Illegal Trade Details Action Taken Remarks
Armenia 18-05-2017 Carbon tetrachloride 400 cylinders CTC 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. Annex to UNEP/OzL.Pro.31/INF/
