Import tariff

On 24 September 2012, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) reduced the import tariffs for six types of goods from the IT and telecommunication sector to 2%. Out of the six items, five are new ex-tarifários while one has been renewed.
 
Ex-tarifários are goods with a tariff exception to the Mercosur Common External Tariff (TEC). The goal of this reduced tariff is to restructure Brazil's industrial park and infrastructure services by incentivizing investments in capital or IT and telecommunication goods. Such an ex-tarifário can be invoked if the desired good is not being produced domestically.
 
The measure created the following ex-tarifários (Ex):

  1. OLED displays for mobile phones (Ex 003 of NCM 8517.70.99) (NCM, i.e., Mercosur Common Nomenclaure)
  2. Silicone keys for phones (Ex 004 of NCM 8517.70.99)
  3. High resolution monitors with colours (Ex 006 of NCM 8528.51.20)
  4. Electronic mini connectors, i.e., Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) (Ex 003 of NCM 8536.90.40)
  5. Radio frequency filters (Ex 001 of NCM 8541.60.90)
  6. Control boxes for ABS systems (Ex 002 of NCM 9032.89.21)

 
The measure, Camex resolution no. 69, came into power on 24 September 2012 and lasts until 30 June 2014
