Export ban

On May 9, 2013, the Government of Uruguay announced the reauthorisation to export stainless steel junk.
 
On June 12, 2002, Uruguayan authorities prohibited, indefinitely, the exportation of magnetic and non-magnetic stainless steel junk. Subsequently, on June 27, 2012, the Uruguayan Ministry of Economy allowed, for a period of 180 days, the exportation of these metal products.
 
By means of this decree, the Uruguayan authorities allow, indefinitely, for the exportation of magnetic and non-magnetic stainless steel junk.
 
This authorization applies to the following items of the MERCOSUR's Harmonized Tariff System: 7204.21.00.90 and 7204.21.00.10.
 
According to UN Comtrade, Uruguay's bilateral trade on the stated tariff line did not exceed USD 1 million for any single trading partner in 2012, the year prior to the imposition of this measure. Hence, no countries are listed as affected trading partners.
