Retrospective Licence Application


Traders should note that lodgement of retrospective applications for Import Licence Form 3 or Export Licence Form 6 covering rice does not imply automatic approval of the licences. The issue of retrospective licences is for the sole purpose of facilitating consignment handling and/or trade data capturing and the granting of a retrospective licence shall not constitute a defence in any proceedings under the Reserved Commodities Ordinance and its subsidiary regulations or preclude any administrative action which may be taken by the Director-General of Trade and Industry.
