Import tariff

On 11 March 2011, Notice no. 195increased the customs duty on bars, profiles and rods of aluminium from free of duty to 5% ad valorem. The customs duty is being reinstated, as it was decreased from 5% to free of duty on 24 July 2009.
 
The duty applies to the following subheadings:

  • 7604.10.35
  • 7604.10.65
  • 7604.21.15
  • 7604.29.15
  • 7604.29.65

 
Member states of the EU, EFTA and the Southern African Development Community continue to be exempted from an import tariff on the abovementioned items.
 
Rebate provision
Certain types of aluminium products under HS 7604 remain free of duty. In order to assure this, the rebate provision 316.01/7604/01.04 was reinstated with Notice no. 197:

  • Hollow profiles of aluminium, of a cross-sectional dimension not exceeding 370 mm, for the manufacture of condensers and evaporators for motor vehicle air conditioning equipment, in such quantities as the International Trade Administration Commission may allow by specific permit after the Commission has been satisfied that the quality of such hollow profiles of aluminium, manufactured in SACU is not acceptable to the motor industry

 
Affected trading partners
The GTA retrieves its data on affected trading partners from UN Comtrade. However, for the year 2010, the database was not able to provide the affected trading partners for Botswana, Lesotho, and Swaziland.
