Import tariff

On May 5, 2017, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution No. 37 decreasing the import tariff on eighteen products from the IT and telecommunications sector. The new duty was reduced from 16%, 14%, 12% and 8% to 2%. The measure was originally intended to last until December 31, 2018, but CAMEX Resolution 64 established modified it significantly (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. 38 that reduces the tariff on capital goods (see related measures). Both resolutions produce 206 ex-tarifários.
