[Translated and forwarded by Consul Gade, of Christiania.]

Royal proclamation concerning custom-house duties from July 1, 1881, for the Kingdom of Norway.

We, Oscar, by the grace of God King of Norway and Sweden, of the Goths and Vandals, make known:

Whereas the Storthing on the 13th and 14th June of this year has decreed as follows:

§ 1. From the 1st of July, 1881, the following duties on goods and vessels shall be paid to the treasury: (a) import duties; (b) storage duties; (c) export duties; (d) tonnage and light-house duties.

§ 2. Import duties, calculated in accordance with the annexed tariff A, shall be collected on foreign goods imported for consumption in this country, whether the importation be at private or public expense, as well as on all domestic goods which on export to foreign countries receive a drawback from the treasury on duties already collected.

Besides such goods as by special license or permission have been or hereafter may be imported free of duty, the following articles shall be exempt from duties:

(a) Ship's inventory, including cabin, galley, and similar inventories, in so far as their quality and quantity may be considered suitable, and they are to remain for use on the vessel on which they were imported from foreign countries. That these inventories have been exported from the country as transit goods in the same vessel in which they were found on its return to have been used does not make them liable to duty.

(b) Similar inventories which have come ashore loose or from vessels wrecked on the Norwegian coasts. Further inventories which have belonged to Norwegian vessels, which have been wrecked or legally condemed as unseaworthy in foreign countries, after the requisite vouchers have been approved by the treasury department.

(c) Ship provisions and other ship stores, brought in ships from foreign countries and remaining on board, provided they do not exceed what custom officers consider warranted by the size of the vessel, its crew and passengers, and the time it remains in port of arrival. If the goods and passengers it carries are destined for different places in the country, their consumption free of duty may continue until the vessel arrives at the place of final delivery for the goods and passengers brought from abroad, as well as during its stay there. If the vessel later clears for foreign countries, or goes to another place in the country without taking goods on board, the residue of provisions and other ship stores may remain on board for use without payment of duty, provided they do not exceed what the custom-house officers deem justified by the length of the proposed journey and other circumstances. But if the vessel goes to another inland port, after taking in goods for home ports, duty must be paid on the residue, provided it cannot be considered trifling. The same holds good when the crew is paid off, provided the residue be not put under lock and seal of the custom-house.
