Alcohol products from major nuclear-affected areas in Japan that have not been inspected and meet the standards for radiation detection are not allowed to be imported into Taiwan.

To prevent contaminated alcohol from being imported to Taiwan, the MOF has conducted lot-to-lot inspection on imported alcohol from 5 prefectures of Japan including Fukushima, Gunma, Ibaraki, Tochigi, and Chiba since the nuclear incident of March 2011 (including imported alcohol is for a limited amount of private use and samples).
To enhance the efficacy of inspection, importers importing alcohol from Japan for private use and samples (Customs clearance code: DN000000000001 and DN000000000002), should declare the manufacturing prefecture of Japan in the field of “Description of the goods” on customs declaration for importation. For instance, the manufacturing prefecture of ○○ plum wine: Kyoto. In some circumstances such as declaring without a prefecture, declaring the wrong prefecture, or a declaration not matching the labelling of the product, importers should apply for modification and provide relevant documents to the NTA. R.O.C Customs will not accept such applications for modification of declarations.
