for Specified Strategic Commodities (SCTREX):

List of Valid Registrants (as at 1 January 2019)

Introduction
 
           The Trade and Industry Department implements the Air Transhipment Cargo Exemption Scheme for Specified Strategic Commodities (SCTREX) (referred below as “the Scheme”) to facilitate the air transhipment of specified strategic commodities through Hong Kong.  Registrants under the Scheme are, subject to certain conditions, exempted from licensing requirements under the Import and Export Ordinance (Cap. 60) and the Import and Export (Strategic Commodities) Regulations (Cap. 60G) (referred below as “the Regulations”) in respect of air transhipment cargo of specified strategic commodities.

Scope of Exemption
 
2.        The Scheme applies to airlines, ground handling agents and freight forwarders successfully registered and granted with a Certificate of Exemption by the Director-General of Trade and Industry.
 
3.        The Scheme covers specified strategic commodities listed in Schedule 1 to the Regulations, except products listed in Schedule 2, which are air transhipment cargo handled by registrants under the Scheme and remain within the confines of the cargo transhipment area of the Hong Kong International Airport pending onward flights.  The licensing requirements for the import and export of strategic commodities specified in Schedule 1 that are not on the air-to-air transhipment mode and those in Schedules 2, 3 and 4 of the Regulations are not affected by the Scheme.  Transhipment of strategic commodities not granted exemption under the Scheme must be covered by valid import and export licence.
