Import tariff

On 9 April 2013, the Government of Argentina introduced reference prices applicable to the importation of duvets, pillows and bedding from China, India and other Asian countries. The products subject to this measure are classified under the following tariff lines of MERCOSUR's Harmonized System: 6005.21.00 and 5514.19.10.
 
These reference prices entered into force on 11 April 2013.
 
Argentina introduced reference values of precautionary nature for imported goods in June 2005 (in Spanish: valores criterio de carácterpreventivo). The stated purpose is to strengthen customs control and prevent under-invoicing. Importers are required to provide guarantees for the difference in duties and taxes if the declared price of an import is lower than its reference price(see 7th GTA Report and 2014 National Trade Estimate Report).A list with all current import reference prices can be consulted under:www.afip.gov.ar/aduana/valoracion/valores.criterios.pdf <U+200E>
