Import tariff

On 8 April 2011, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) exempted the customs duty on the following goods:

  • rubberised textile fabrics (5906.10.15): previously 22 percent ad valorem
  • tyre cord fabrics (5902.10, 5902.20, and 5902.90): previously 15 percent ad valorem
  • quinolone (2933.49.10): previously 10 percent ad valorem

 
The tariff change was requested by Bridgestone South Africa (Pty) Ltd to the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) of South Africa. The commission granted the duty reduction, since the goods in question are not produced in the Southern African Custom Union (SACU).
 
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, Swaziland, and Lesotho.
