ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On 23 December 2011, the government of South Africa removed the import duty on certain pistons.
The good carries the subheading 8409.99.30 and the following description:
Prior to the change, the import tariff was 20 percent for all countriesin general and 15 percent for pistons originating from the EU. Memberstates of EFTA and SADC were already exempted from the duty.
The duty exemption is based on a request by Masterparts (Pty) Ltd to the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC). The Commission in turn recommended the exemption since pistons for diesel enginges are no longer produced in the SACU.
