Import tariff quota

On 5 May 2016, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution No. 43 introducing temporary tariff-rate quotas on three products.

The import tariff was reduced on palm kernel oil from 10% to 2% limited to a quota of 224,785 tonne and certain x-ray films, primed on both sides, from 10% to 2% limited to a quota of 1,000 tonnes. The subject goods fall under the Mercosur Common Nomenclature (NCM) 1513.29.10 and 3702.10.20 respectively. This measure enters into force on 6 May 2016 for a period of 12 months.

Additionally, the import tariff was reduced on anhydrous from 10% to 2% limited to a quota of 455,000 tonnes. The subject good falls under NCM 2833.11.10. This measure enters into force on 28 June 2016 for a period of 6 months.
