The Fiji Land Transport Authority has appointed JEVIC for the conduct of the Offshore Vehicle Inspection of used vehicles exported from Japan destined for use on the roads in The Republic of Fiji.
|Commencement date in Japan:||15-July-2016|
|Requirement date in Fiji:||15-August-2016|
|Inspection Fee:||¥8,700/vehicle (plus 8% tax)|
The appraisal assesses vehicle condition, as well as structural, odometer, stolen vehicle and biosecurity aspects. JEVIC inspectors will conduct the appraisals in freight forwarder and exporter premises in and around the major used vehicle export ports in Japan.
The fee for the Pre-Export Appraisal Report is regulated by the government of Fiji and has been set at FJ$169.00 (VEP) per vehicle, yen equivalent payable to JEVIC in Japan.
The inspection is mandatory for all used vehicles destined to Fiji, however completion is only part of the requirement and does not guarantee a vehicle’s import approval into Fiji.

Please ensure that there is a Consignee noted in the booking form
Conditional conformity requiring consultation with the LTA. Vehicles deemed to have conditional conformity are permitted to continue on the import pathway to registration inspection in Fiji, where the LTA will make the final decision on what, if any, remedial action is required.
Non-conformity due to a deficiency with the vehicle. Vehicles will be rejected from the inspection for the following deficiencies, and no Appraisal Report will be issued. A Non-conformity Report (NCR) will be distributed to the Exporter, Consignee and LTA. Please note that vehicles subject to an NCR will not be eligible for registration for use on the roads in Fiji.
For conforming and conditional conforming units, a Pre-Export Vehicle Appraisal Report.
For non-conforming units, a Non-Conformance Report (NCR).
It is unlikely that the vehicle will be shipped-back from Fiji, rather that the issues with the vehicle will need to be remedied in Fiji.
