COALITION PROVISIONAL AUTHORITY
MEMORAMDUM NUMBER 8


EXPORTATION OF SCRAP METAL
UNDER
ORDER NUMBER 12, TRADE LIBERALIZATION POLICY
(CPA/ORD/7 June 2003/12)


Pursuant to my authority as Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA),
and under the laws and usages of war, and consistent with relevant U.N. Security Council
Resolutions, including Resolutions 1483 and 15ll (2003),

Acknowledging the central role of international trade in Iraq’s recovery and its
development of a free market economy,

Noting that the export of certain items, including certain metal products, is currently
prohibited,

Recognizing that the legitimate export of scrap metal is a potentially important source of
income for Iraqi businesses,

Emphasizing the need to control black-market activities while promoting opportunities
for legitimate businesses,

I hereby promulgate the following:

Section 1
Purpose and Definition

or part of a product, but has lost its intended usefulness as a result of obsolescence,
damage or destruction.

Section 2
Exclusion of Scrap as Prohibited Export


The manufactured goods that are prohibited from export under the Annex to CPA
Order Number 12 (CPA/ORDANNEX/7 June 2003/12) shall not include scrap
