International trade has, in recent years, become a very important concept in Malta. At GMX we regularly advise clients on a number of customs related issues such as; the import and export of services as well trade solutions.
Under Maltese law, international trade is mainly regulated through the Importation Control Regulation (Legal Notice 242 of 2004), whereas the Customs Ordinance deals more specifically with the import and export of goods. Under these laws certain products require an authorization or an import license issued by the Trade Services Directorate to be imported. Likewise, there are also certain goods that require authorisations or export licenses issued by the Trade Service Directorate to be exported.
At GMX we are available to assist our international and local clients on various issues related to international trade and customs.
