Import tariff

Effective 12 August 2011, the government of South Africa has elminated import tariffs on dehydrated castor oil (HS 1518.00.90). As the type of oil is very specific, a rebate provision was created under the classification 307.01/15.18/01.04 with the following description:

  • Dehydrated castor oil, classifiable in tariff subheading 1518.00.90, for use in the manufacture of alkyd resins in primary form, classifiable in tariff subheading 3907.50 in such quantities, at such times and under such conditions as the International Trade Administration Commission may allow by specific permit

 
Affected trading partners
According to UN Comtrade, SACU's bilateral trade on the stated tariff line did not exceed USD 1 million for any single trading partner in 2010, the year prior to the imposition of this measure. Hence, no countries are listed as affected trading partners. Also, no data was available on Swaziland, Botswana and Lesotho.
