GLRPPR Sector Resource: Person in the Port Project: Assessing Import of Used Electrical and Electronic Equipment Into Nigeria

Title:
Person in the Port Project: Assessing Import of Used Electrical and Electronic Equipment Into Nigeria

Abstract:
This report presents the method and results of the inspection of containers and vehicles, and the review of import documents, associated with UEEE imports via the Tin Can Island Port Complex (TCIPC) and the Lagos Port Complex Apapa (LPCA), the two hubs for UEEE imports in Nigeria, in 2015 and 2016. The person in the port (PiP) inspected 201 containers and 2,184 roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vehicles with used electrical and electronic equipment (UEEE), and reviewed 3,622 import documents of UEEE in containers. The containers with imported UEEE represent around 0.7% of all containers with goods imported via the LPCA and the TCIPC in 2015 and 2016. Thus, on average, 1 out of 143 imported containers was found to contain UEEE.
