Public procurement preference margin

On 3 April 2014, the Brazilian government decided in Decree no. 8.223 to apply a margin of preference of 10% for the public procurement of various types of toys and games. The goods are classified under the Mercosur Common Nomenclature (NCM) 9503.
 
This means that a domestic producer will be preferred by the government if the contractor offers a price that is within the range of the lowest bid by a foreign company plus the preferential margin of 10%. Brazil's preferential margins-scheme was introduced by Law no. 12.349/2010 in the realm of the Plano Brasil Maior, i.e., Greater Brazil Plan (see Related Measures).
 
The measure (Decree no. 8223) came into effect on 4 April 2014 and lasts until 31 December 2015.
