Import tariff

The International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa has recommended a reduction in the duty on rope lights classified under tariff subheading 9405.40.90 to free of duty through the creation of a new eight-digit subheading. This is to read as 'Rope lights having a casing of polymers of vinyl (chloride)with an outside diameter of 13 mm or more but not exceeding 15mm internally fitted with interconnected lamps.'
