Import tariff

On 11 October 2013, upon the advice of the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC), the South African Revenue Service (SARS) created a rebate of duty facility for palm oil, refined, bleached and deodorized but not fractionated, classifiable in tariff subheading HS 1511.90, for the manufacture of edible fates or oils, classifiable in tariff subheading HS 1517.90.
 
The customs duty was reduced from 10 per cent ad valorem to free of duty. However, the EU and Southern African Development Community (SADC) are not affected by this measure, since they were already exempted from the import tariff.
 
The ITAC based its decision on the fact, that there are no producers of the good in question or its substitutes in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU).
 
Affected trading partners
The GTA retrieves its data on affected trading partners from UN Comtrade. However, for the year 2012, the database was not able to provide the affected trading partners for Botswana, Swaziland, and Lesotho.
