According to the letter on the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. (ISRI) website, all ports are required to strictly follow newly imposed national environmental protection standards, and inspection and quarantine procedures imposed from May 4, 2018 through June 4, 2018. During this period pre-shipment inspections on importation of wastes as raw materials (PSI) will be temporarily shut down.

For those shipments that have been inspected and obtained the certificates for wastes as
raw materials by CCIC’s Northern America Limited Company before and on May 3, 2018, they could continue to proceed with import custom applications, based on original rules.

Read the letter as posted:

SCS Engineers along with our industry associations SWANA and NWRA will follow the news closely.
