Classification of Goods
The classification of goods, i.e. the assignment of commodity codes to certain documents of this import report, has been verified and adjusted as appropriate in accordance with the current stipulations of the Japanese Tariff Schedule, as applicable.
Ozone-Depleting Substances (ODS)
As a member of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, Japan has phased out the importation of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons as well as products containing them. Japan has furthermore accepted the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol on 18 December 2018. Accordingly, the mentioned products are prohibited from importation into Japan with the exemption of CFC
-based metered dose inhalers (MDIs), which are currently exempt from the control of the Montreal Protocol as essential use.
