Import tariff

On July 5, 2017, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution No. 50 decreasing the import tariff on seventy-four products from the IT and telecommunications sector to 2%. The measure is in force until June 30, 2019.

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. 51 that reduces the tariff on capital goods (see related states acts). Both resolutions produce 865 ex-tarifários.
