Import tariff

On July 5, 2017, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution No. 51 decreasing the import tariff on 791 capital goods. The new duty was reduced to 2%, and 0% depending on the product. This state act is in force until December 31, 2017, June 30, 2018, and June 30, 2019, depending on the capital good.

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. 50 that reduces the tariff on IT products (see related state acts).  Both resolutions produce 865 ex-tarifários.

Update
On 5 June 2018, the Camex issued Resolution 38 revoking from July 1, the temporary import duty decrease set on tariff lines NCM  8407.21.90 and 8407.29.90 (please, see related estate acts).
