How to Export Scrap Metal from UK to India?

Question posted by Angad Sekhon, on behalf of HSSA in TW3

Hi,

I am looking forward to export scrap metal from UK to India. I have my contacts in India and I know how the freight charges work for 40ft HC or 20ft FCL to India via sea. Although I need to know from where I can find suppliers of scrap metal? What license I require and any other permissions or certificates required from government? Any guidance will be very beneficial.

Thank you.

Hello,
Take a look at http://madb.europa.eu/madb/indexPubli.htm which will give you information on what is needed.

You will find you need to know the customs tariff code for you products. Take a look at https://www.gov.uk/trade-tariff to work that out.

Hi Angad

STI Global are experts in shipping this type of cargoes to India.
To export you will need to be registered as a recycling company,
then you will need to supply an Annex 7 Certificate to which you must
place a copy of the certificate inside the doors of the containers.
Scrap metal is regarded by many shipping lines as a nuisance cargo which
is always subject to abandonment in India so your buyer must have a licence
to import scrap and you must supply your forwarder with a copy of both your licence
to export and his licence to import with the Annex 7. Most if not all carriers will then
require you to sign an indemnity protecting them in the event that goods are abandoned at
destination.
If you would like to chat more on this please call me or email me further info on the below
details.

Hi Ian/Susan,

Thank you for your prompt responses. Ian, are you doing currently scrap metal containers from Uk to India? And as you said what kind of problem you get for clearing the container at port. I have my contact in India, but still I want to make sure I have all the information correct on my side. Also how to declare these goods on BL?

Thank you

Hi Angad,

Yes we are shipping up to 20 containers per week down to Nhava Sheva and Chennai Port
from the UK.
there are NO problems with UK Customs on this material as its Metal Scrap but you must issue us / Carrier with an Annex 7, Copy of your Recycling Licence, Copy of Consignees Import Licence and you will need to sign an indemnity for possible abandoned goods. Other than that a copy of your commercial Invoice and Packing List together with full copy of the Letter of Credit (If you have one) so we can raise bills of lading. The description of the goods should be "Metal Scrap, recycled for rework and manufacture" Then you will need to add the Importers Name. This will only differ if you already have a goods description from your local environmental agency. If you contact the below lady she is the specialist on Scrap cargoes being exported from the UK and she will give you all the answers you will need with regards to classification of your goods description etc.
