Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

With Government Decree No. 870 of August 30, 2012, the Russian Federation introduced a disposal fee for imported new and second hand wheel vehicles. The new fee enters into force on September 1, 2012. The disposal fee amounts to 20,000 Russian Roubles for imported cars, and to 150,000 Russian Roubles for imported trucks.
Wheel vehicles, imported in Russia from Belarus and Kazakhstan, having the status of a commodity under the regulation of the Customs Union of the Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, are exempted from the payment of the disposal fee in the following two cases:

1) The vehicles are imported in Belarus or in Kazakhstan and the due import duties are different from the stipulated by the Unified Customs Tariff of the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, approved by DecisionNo. 55 of July 16, 2012 of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission. 
2) The manufacturers of vehicles are registered in Belarus and Kazakhstan, and they belong to a list, prepared and updated by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.

 
Decree No. 1291 of 26 December 2013 abolished the advantage for local manufacturers. With Decrees No. 29-31 of 15 January 2014 (GTA measures 5928-5931) the government approved the compensation of local producers with industrial subsidies (allowed by the WTO) for the loss of their competitiveness. This step is in line with the March 2013 statement of the Russian Minister of Economy t that time, Mr. Andrey Belousov, that the incentives for car assemblers* operating Russia must be preserved.
 
*All bigger Russian manufacturers and foreign manufacturers operating in Russia, as well as the majority of their joint ventures, work in an assembling regime.
