Belarus to lift restrictions on export of motor fuel as from September
MINSK (BelTA) – The Council of Ministers of Belarus will abolish restrictions on the export of motor fuel from the territory of Belarus starting from 1 September 2016. The relevant decision is laid down by the Council of Ministers' executive order No.526 of 1 July 2016. The document was published on the National Legal Internet Portal on 7 July.
Several government orders, among which is executive order No.753 of 10 June 2011 “Concerning some issues of regulating the export of motor fuel from the territory of the Republic of Belarus” and executive order No.1554 of 18 November 2011 that amended the abovementioned document, are no longer considered valid.
The State Border Committee and the State Customs Committee have been instructed to bring their normative legal acts in line with the current executive order.
The document will come into force on 1 September 2016.
As was earlier reported, the Council of Ministers' executive order No.1554 of 18 November 2011 was used for measures to restrict the export of motor fuel out of the country and stabilize the situation at checkpoints on the Belarusian border. According to the document, a person could leave the Customs Union from Belarus once in eight days on the same car. If there was a need to travel more often, the person had to pay a duty on fuel.
