PNG Customs and NICTA to impose heavy fines for illegal ICT goods

PNG Customs and ICT industry regulator, NICTA, today issued the warning as a result of the growing illegal and mainly substandard radio communication equipment and devices flooding PNG.

These unapproved ICT apparatus and devices are mainly of low quality and are not durable.

The public has been urged to refrain from buying them and report to Customs or NICTA those involved in the import, sale or supply of the illegal merchandise.  

Customs officers and NICTA inspectors will step up presence and surveillance at ports of entry and border areas of the country.
