Verkhovna Rada has registered a draft bill “On setting export duty on scrap of ferrous and non-ferrous metals”, submitted by President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko.

The draft bill provides for cancellation of ban imposed on export non-ferrous metals from Ukraine. (Ukraine imposed a ban on export of non-ferrous metals in 1999 in connection with mass and uncontrolled export of aluminium and copper – ed.).

Explanatory note says that the issue concerning lifting of ban on export of non-ferrous metals repeatedly arises during negotiations over Ukraine’s accession into the WTO. The existence of this norm in Ukrainian legislations is treated as a restrictive measure, which does not meet WTO articles.

The aim of the draft bill is to guarantee Ukraine’s accession into the WTO and to strengthen Ukraine’s positions in negotiations with the European Union concerning free access of Ukrainian metal production to the European market.
