Import tariff quota

On 5 April 2012, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) reduced the import tariffs on terephthalic acids (PTA) and steel plates. The products have been labeled as ex-tarifários, i.e. products with a tariff exception to the Mercosur Common External Tariff.
 
The following tariff rate quotas have been introduced:

  • For terephthalic acid and its salts (NCM 2917.36.00), the tariff was reduced from 12% to 0% until 31 July 2012. The tariff reduction was limited to a quota of 75.000 tons
  • For steel plates thicker than 10mm (Ex 001 of NCM 7208.51.00), the tariff was reduced from 12% to 2% until 5 October 2012 (180 days). The tariff reduction was limited to a quota of 145.000 tons. On 14 June 2012, Camex resolution no. 39 extended the tariff reduction on steel plates until 5 February 2013 (see also "Related Measures").
