Import tariff quota

On 23 July 2018, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council adopted Resolution 48 temporarily reducing to 2% the import duty on certain synthetic filament yarn classified under tariff subheading NCM 5402.20.00 for a quota of 4,200 tonnes.

According to the WTO import tariff database, the applicable import duty outside the quota is 18%.

Previously to this intervention, no tariff rate quota applied for this product.

This measure applies for a period of six months.
