Import tariff

On 12 July 2013, upon the advice of the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC), the South African Revenue Service (SARS) introduced a rebate of duty for slugs for impact extrusion (HS 7616.99) for use in the manufacture of aluminium aerosol cans.
 
The ITAC found that aluminium slugs for impact extrusion are not manufactured in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) and that the duty is an onerous burden on the aerosol can manufacturing industry, in the face of stiff foreign competition, especially from East Asia, that has significantly eroded its market share.
 
Thus, the customs duty was reduced to free of duty from originally 10 to 15 per cent ad valorem for goods originating from countries other than EU/EFTA. The latter two remain free of duty.
