ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On 14 October 2011, upon the advice of the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC), the South African Revenue Service (SARS) eliminated the import tariffs on lysine and its esters (HS 2922.41), and feed supplements containing at least 40% (by mass) of lysine (HS 2309.90.65).
Previously, the tariff stood at 10% ad valorem. EU and EFTA member states are not affected by the measure, since those countries already enjoyed duty-free access to South Africa.
