Israel operates import prohibitions for reasons of human health, public morals, environment, and security.  It is a signatory to the Basel Convention on Hazardous Wastes, the Montreal Protocol, and CITES.  The importation of 17 products or groups of products is prohibited (Table I).  The prohibitions apply equally to all trading partners.  The legal basis for Israel's import prohibitions is the Appendix of the 2005 Customs Order and the 2006 Free Import Order. In addition, since December 1994, Israel has maintained a ban on imports of non-kosher meat and meat products.  However, the Government permits limited domestic production, sale, and consumption of non-kosher meat.
