India delays registration deadline.

A scrap import registration process being overseen by India's Director General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has been delayed because of a large influx of applications.

The Bureau of International Recycling (BIR), Brussels, has been reviewing the procedure since "the various issues related to the DGFT registration were thoroughly discussed during its Brussels Convention in October 2006," according to the trade group.

At that time, BIR "clearly expressed its members' concerns," according to BIR. "Many applicants were still waiting for some answers from the Indian authorities who admitted that they couldn't cope with the extremely high number of applications before the deadline," according to a BIR news release.

The BIR, partially crediting its "continuous negotiations with the Indian authorities," has announced that a new DGFT notice dated April 16, 2007, has extended the existing import policy for scrap materials until Sept. 30, 2007.

The new system of importing administered by the DGFT and involving registered companies will come into effect Oct. 1,2007.
