Import and Export Ordinance

The Import and Export Ordinance (Cap 60) regulates the import of articles into Hong Kong, the export of articles from Hong Kong, the handling and carriage of such articles within Hong Kong.  The import/export of pesticides (including those POPs pesticides governed by the Stockholm Convention) requires an import/export licence under Cap 60 on a consignment basis.  The import/export licensing control system of pesticides in Hong Kong is administered by the AFCD.

Details of Cap 60 and its subsidiary regulations can be found at the "Hong Kong e-Legislation" website of the Department of Justice. Information on the import/export of pesticides can be found at the AFCD's website.
