    PROHIBITED AND RESTRICTED IMPORTS 1. Apart from the requirements of the Import Control Regulations the importation of a wide variety of goods is either totally prohibited or is subject to

    inspection by other authorities and/or production of special permits/licences issued by these authorities or may be imported by certain authorities only.

    2. This reference list has been compiled, using the tariff headings of the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System as a guide, to assist officers of this office. The Customs and Excise Tariff is in no way affected by the classifications appearing in this list.

    3. As certain prohibitions or restrictions cover such a wide range of articles as to make classification according to the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System virtually impossible or where specific provision is not made in the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System, the following prohibitions/restrictions must always be borne in mind:
