Import tariff

On September 28, 2016, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution No. 81 decreasing the import tariff on ten products from the IT and telecommunications sector to 2%. The measure entered into force on 24 June 2016 and was meant to be in force until June 30, 2018, however, on August 16, 2017, CAMEX issued Resolution 64, introducing a new duty (see related state acts).

Ex-tarifário regime
The tariffs were reduced under Brazil's ex-tarifário regime, which allows temporary customs duty exceptions under the Mercosur Common External Tariff on capital and IT goods. Such an exception can be invoked in case the good in question has no domestically produced equivalent. The goal of this is to restructure Brazil's industrial park and infrastructure services (see WTO Trade Policy Review).

The measure was introduced simultaneously with Camex Resolution No. 91 that reduces the tariff on capital goods (see related measure). Both measures produce 241 ex-tarifários.
