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 the elimination of the tariff on constant velocity (CV) joints(HS 8708.50.30), previously at 20% ad valorem for non-EU/EFTA countries, effective immediately.
 
The ITAC based its decision on the fact that CV joints are no longer manufactured in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) and that the existing duty has an unnecessary cost-raising impact.
