What Regulations Are There on Importing Printers and Ink to Palestine?

  • After the territory fell under Israeli occupation in 1967, it was cut off from previous trade relationships and its trade policy was severely controlled by Israel.
  • The framework within which the Palestinian foreign trade regime operates was set out by the Protocol on Economic Relations, so called Paris Protocol. It was signed between the government of the State of Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) representing the Palestinian people in 1994 and incorporated to the Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, so called the Oslo II Accord, in 1995.
  • The present regime inherently links Palestine to a large extent to the foreign trade regime of Israel and thus to its rights and obligations under the WTO.
  • In recent years, faced with the immediate concerns of a deep fiscal crisis and an unstable political situation, the region has made little recent progress in improving the business environment.
  • Usual customs procedure such as submission of goods declaration with necessary import documents to the Customs authority and release order of Customs is necessary for Dangerous Goods.
  • Because inks contain hazardous chemicals, it is important to follow Palestine’s import regulations.
