Import tariff

On February 17, 2017, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Chamber (Camex) issued Resolution No. 19 decreasing the import tariff on 247 capital goods. The new duty was reduced to 2%. This state act was meant to be in force until December 31, 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 additionally introduced simultaneously with Camex Resolution No. 18 that reduces the tariff on IT products (see related state act).  Both resolutions produce 267 ex-tarifários.
