Import tariff

On 11 April 2014, upon the advice of the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC), the South African Revenue Service (SARS) issued Notice R. 277, introducing new rebates for the industrial use of cranberry fruit juice under tariff subheading 2009.81.10 for use in the manufacture of mixtures of fruit juices of tariff subheading 2009.90.10. While the tariff line has a general duty of 20% (with duty exemptions for imports from EU and SADC countries), imports for use in connection with the production or manufacture of mixtures of fruit juices are henceforth entitled to a full rebate.
 
The ITAC based its decision on the fact that cranberries are not produced in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU).
