Import tariff

On July 12, 2013 upon the advice of the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC), the South African Revenue Service (SARS) published an increase in the tariff on wire nails (previously HS 7317.00.10; now under three subheadings 7317.00.02, 7317.00.04 and 7317.00.06) from 5% to 15% ad valorem for non-EU/EFTA countries, effective immediately.
 
The ITAC based its decision on the finding that the production of wire nails has declined sharpy in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) and that SACU-manufactuerers are facing price disadvantages especially vis-ŕ-vis East Asian Producers.
