Import tariff

On 27 August 2012, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) altered the List of Exceptions to the Mercosur Common External Tariff (Letec).The measure, Camex resolution no. 62, included one new ex-tarifário (Ex) and excluded two trade lines (NCM, i.e., Mercosur Common Nomenclature) from the list:

  • Fire trucks/vehicles for aerodromes (Ex 001 of NCM 8705.30.00) received an import tariff reduction from 35% to 0% for a quota of 80 units, starting 1 September 2012 until 16 March 2014.
  • Split-systems (NCM 8415.10.11) and condenser units for split-system air-conditioners (NCM 8415.90.20) have been excluded from the list. Their exceptional tariffs - 35% and 25% respectively - go back to the Mercosur Common External Tariff which is 18%. The measure also starts 1 September 2012.

 
Mercosur allows Brazil to introduce trade lines (i.e., NCM codes) with tariff exceptions. The number of those trade lines is limited to a quota of 100 different NCM codes. Those codes have either a lower or higher tariff than the Mercosur Common External Tariff (TEC) and are laid out in the List of Exceptions to the Mercosur Common External Tariff (Letec) in Camex resolution no. 94/2011, Annex II. Ex-tarifários, on the other hand, are part of those trade lines but refer explicitly to capital or IT and telecommunication goods with no domestic production.
 
On 17 March 2014, the tariff rate quota on fire trucks for aerodromes was extended until 16 March 2015 by Camex Reslution 21/14.
