Import tariff

On November 23, 2016, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution No. 114 decreasing the import tariff on ninety-five capital goods. The new duty was reduced from 30%, 14% and 10% to 2%, and from 14% to 0% depending on the product. The measure entered into force on November 28, 2016, and was meant to be iin force until December 31, 2017, and June 30, 2018, depending on the capital goods, however, on August 16, 2017, CAMEX issued Resolution 64, modifying the 2% import 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 additionally introduced simultaneously with Camex Resolution No. 113 that reduces the tariff on IT products (see related measures).  Both resolutions produce 105 ex-tarifários.
