The devaluation of many currencies, the lack of capital and expensive credit has forced companies to look for alternatives to buying new equipment and parts. Many companies are up-grading their equipment or buying used equipment and then refurbishing it.
- Licenses may be required by the Minister of Industry/Trade or officials in certain agencies that cover the type of equipment being imported into the country.
- As proof of refurbishment, goods may require a certificate notarized by the commercial office of the country's embassy or consulate in the United States - as proof of refurbishment.
- Mandatory registration and certification requirements for the importation of used/refurbish equipment may limit access to that market.
- Certain Ministries within the country will only register new equipment, not refurbished equipment.
- Certain safety and environmental regulations must be considered.
- Restrictions on used equipment that is over a certain age.
- Certain countries may require the original manufacturer or authorized agent to refurbish used equipment
- In certain cases, all used items entering into customs are subject to the same import tax treatment as new item. This is because the Harmonized tariff schedule often has no item subdivision for "rebuilt" or "refurbished" equipment.
- A "disinfection certificate" may be required for used clothing imports.
