Import tariff

On February 4, 2011, the Government of Argentina introduced reference prices applicable to the importation of spectacle lenses of glass and other materials from China and other Asian countries. The product subject to this measure is classified under the following tariff line of MERCOSUR's Harmonized System: 9001.40.00 y 9001.50.00.
 
These reference prices entered into force on February 8, 2011.
 

Import Criterion Values
Argentina introduced reference values of precautionary nature for imported goods in June 2005 (in Spanish: valores criterio de carácter preventivo). The stated purpose is to strengthen customs control and prevent under-invoicing. Importers are required to provide guarantees for the difference in duties and taxes if the declared price of an import is lower than its reference price (see 7th GTA Report and 2014 National Trade Estimate Report). A list with all current import reference prices can be consulted under:www.afip.gov.ar/aduana/valoracion/valores.criterios.pdf

 
Update
On 9 August 2011, the Federal Administration for Public Revenue of Argentina adopted General Resolution 3159/2011 modifying the applicable reference prices set on NCM 9001.50.00 (please, see related state acts).
