On May 22, the Colombian Ministry of Mine and Energy issued Resolution 40583 of 2015 granting a special temporary authorization to import ethanol (HS Code 2207.20.00) under an import quota of 1 million gallons at MFN 10% import duty. Previously to this resolution, the importation of ethanol for biofuels was banned as Resolution 90454/2014 explicitly stated that the importation of ethanol for fuel mixtures was restricted and required the special authorization of the Ministry of Mine and Energy.
