Import tariff quota

On 8 January 2016 the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution No. 1 introducing or prolonging tariff-rate quotas on eight products under the Mercosur Common Nomenclature (NCM).
The introduction of four products under the following tariff-rate quotas entered into force on 11 January 2016 for a period of 12 months:
 

  • Dimethylformamide (NCM 2924.19.22) import duty is reduced from 14% to 2% and is limited to a quota of 5,300 tons
  • Diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI) (NCM 2929.10.10) import duty is reduced from 14% to 2% and is limited to a quota of 23,000 tons
  • Viscose fiber (NCM 5504.10.00) import duty is reduced from 12% to 2% and is limited to a quota of 20,000 tons
  • Peptide antitumor RB09 (NCM 3002.10.29) import duty is reduced from 2% to 0% and is limited to a quota of 500 grams

Additionally the tariff-rate quota on aluminium sheets and plates (NCM 7606.12.90) was extended until 30 January 2017. Whilst the tariff rate remains the same, the quota is increased from 2000 tonnes to 2,937 tonnes. Three other products' tariff-rate quotas were also temporarily extended (see related measures).
 
Affected trade partners are identified based on the UN Comtrade's import data from 2014.

Update

On January 23, 2017, Camex issued Resolution No. 1 extending the tariff-rate quota for another twelve months starting on February 1, 2017. The import duty and quota remains the same. See related measure.
