Import tariff quota

On 15 January 2015, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution No. 2 introducing various temporary tariff reductions coupled with import quotas:

  • Aluminium sheets and plates classified under Mercosur Common Nomenclature (NCM) 7606.12.90: tariff was reduced from 12% to 2% for a quota of 2.000 tonnes and a period of 12 months, starting 16 January 2015
  • Barium sulphate classified under NCM 2833.27.10: tariff was reduced from 10% to 2% for a quota of 10.000 tonnes and a period of 12 months, starting 16 January 2015
  • Aniline and its salts classified under NCM 2921.41.00: tariff was reduced from 12% to 2% for a quota of 7.500 tonnes and a period 12 months, starting 16 January 2015
  • Titanium oxide classified under NCM 2823.00.10: tariff was reduced from 10% to 2% for a quota of 8.000 tonnes and a period of 12 months, starting 16 January 2015
  • Anhydrous sodium sulphate classified under NCM 2833.11.10: tariff was reduced from 10% to 2% for a quota of 425.000 tonnes and a period of six months, starting 13 April 2015
  • Palm oil classified under NCM 1513.29.10: tariff was reduced from 10% to 2% for a quota of 116.157 tonnes and a period of six months, starting 17 April 2015

 
Brazil applies temporary tariff reductions coupled with import quotas aimed at addressing shortages within MERCOSUR (see WTO Trade Policy Review).
 
Update
On 22 July 2015 Camex Resolution No. 66 extended the tariff-rate quota on palm oil (NCM 1513.29.10) until 16 April 2016.
 
On 11 January 2016 Camex Resolution No. 1 extended the tariff-rate quota on aluminium sheets and plates (NCM 7606.12.90) until 30 January 2017. Whilst the tariff rate remains the same, the quota is increased to 2,937 tonnes. Additionally, Resolution No. 1 extends tariff-rate quota on titanium oxide (NCM 2823.00.10) until the 15 January 2017 with the same tariff-rate and quota. 

On January 23, 2017, Camex issued Resolution No. 1 extending the tariff-rate quota for another twelve months starting on February 1, 2017. The import duty and quota remains the same. See related measure.
