Safeguard

On 17 June 2009, the Turkish authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive safeguard duty imposed on imports of motorcycles. The products subject to review are classified under the following HS code subheadings: 8711.10.00.00.11, 8711.10.00.00.19, 8711.20.10.00.00, 8711.20.91.00.00, 8711.20.93.00.00, 8711.20.98.00.00, and 8711.30.10.00.00. The definitive safeguard duty was originally imposed in March 2007.

On 14 January 2010, the Turkish authorities notified the WTO of its decision to extended the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good. A safeguard duty is imposed on goods with a CIF value below a set threshold level. The threshold is set between USD 1200 and 2600 per piece depending on the specific good. The rate of duty the first year from 15 August 2009 is between USD 170 and 255 per piece depending on the specific good. The duty is hereafter lowered by USD 5 per piece every year. The duty is in force for a period of three years. Certain developing countries are exempt from duty.

A safeguard duty is imposed on goods with a CIF value below a set threshold level. The threshold is set between USD 1080 and 2070 per piece depending on the specific good.
