MRAI Cautions to Remain Watchful on 'Deteriorating' Quality of Material Imports

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): The Material Recycling Association of India (MRAI) has warned its members against imports of low-quality materials having high non-metallic content into the country. The Association noted that there has been significant rise in such imports post restrictions imposed by the Chinese administration on the quality of materials permitted to be imported into that country.

In a letter to its members, MRAI urged its members to refrain from any sort of activity that could possibly harm the entire sector. It reminded that such malpractices are likely to impact not only a particular company but the entire trade and industry. The buyers as well as sellers should ensure that they completely abide by the terms of the contract and its commitments. They should also be prompt in payment related issues. Conforming to material quality could help to avoid non-acceptance of the shipment and the numerous issues that follows it.

According to MRAI, the entire industry should do the needful to promote environment-friendly imports to the country. Any negligence could soon turn the country into a dumping ground, it warned. MRAI reminded its members that the activities are closely monitored by the government and that any violation, if caught, could result in hefty penalties or even cancellation of their import license.

The Association urged the members not to compromise on the quality of material, as it will have significant negative impacts on Indian market.
