Import tariff

On 9 October 2009, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) issued Notice no. 953 exempting the customs duty on cartridge cases. Previously, the tariff schedule was 15% in general, 7.5% for EU states, 15% for EFTA member states, and free of duty for members of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
 
The duty reduction was requested by Industrial Cartridge (Pty) Ltd. to the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC). The ITAC in turn recommended a rebate of full duty on cartridge cases and wads used in the manufacture of industrial cartridges. The reason for this is that the good in question is not produced in the SACU region.
 
The rebate provision is classified under 319.01/9306.29/01.06/67 and reads the following: 'Cartridge cases with a length of 78 mm and wads (power pistons) with a diameter of 23 mm and with a length of 24 mm or more but not exceeding 32 mm, depending on the slug loaded (zinc or lead) for use in the manufacture of cartridges classifiable in tariff subheading 9306.21'.
 
Affected trading partners
The GTA retrieves its data on affected trading partners from UN Comtrade. However, for the year 2008, the database was not able to provide the affected trading partners for Botswana, Swaziland, and Lesotho. Also, for South Africa and Namibia there were no imported goods under HS 9306 registered.
