WHEREAS, there is a need for an effective monitoring of all sugar importation in order to minimize/prevent the smuggling of sugar into the country;

NOW, THEREFORE, under and by virtue of the authority vested in the Sugar Regulatory Administration (SRA), it is hereby ordered that:

SECTION 1.

  4. Country of Origin
  5. Name of Vessel
  6. Expected Date of Arrival
  7. Port of Entry
Failure of the said importer/consignee to comply with herein provision, shall mean that the SRA shall automatically classify the imported sugar as "C" or Reserve sugar.

SECTION 3. The SRA shall enter into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the EIIB for the effective monitoring of all sugar importation, said MOA prescribing the functional responsibilities of each agency.
