Printer-friendly version

This guidance document is designed to provide assistance for those organising the shipment of  used  or  pre-owned  vehicles,  vehicle  parts,  tyres,  electrical  and  electronic  equipment,personal effects, machinery and other items that are still in usable condition. It aims to clarify and  simplify  the  information  contained  within  the  European  Union  Member  States Correspondents'  Guidelines  No.  9  and  the  Waste  Electrical  and  Electronic  Equipment Regulations 2014 (S.I.149 of 2014).

When used goods are shipped into or out of Ireland for the purpose of re-use, an exporter must be satisfied that the used goods are fit for direct re-use and/or for the same purpose for which the goods were originally designed. It is the responsibility of those  parties  organising shipments for re-use to ensure that the items being shipped are not waste.
