Import tariff quota

On June 27, 2017, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution No. 41 introducing tariff-rate quotas on medical x-ray films, polymers of vinyl chloride, and acrylic polymers in primary forms, falling under the Mercosur Common Nomenclature (NCM): 3702.10.20, 3904.30.00 and 3906.90.49. The general import duty set at 14% was temporarily reduced to 2% for a certain quota. The established quotas were the following:

  • 1,000 tonnes for NCM 3702.10.20;
  • 5,000 tonnes for NCM 3904.30.00;
  • between 460 tonnes and 10,000 tonnes depending on the product for NCM 3906.90.49.

These temporary tariffs apply for twelve months starting on June 30, 2017.
