Import tariff

On 3 August 2018, the SARS adopted Notice R. 794 decreasing from 10% to 0% the import duty set on ethylene-alpha-olefin copolymers classified under tariff subheading 3901.40.

This import duty change was the consequences of a request made by West African Group (Pty) Ltd. (WEG) to the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) on the basis that until 2017 this product was classified under tariff subheading 3901.10 and was subject to a duty-free import tariff, however, since it was transposed to the new tariff subheading the applicable import duty was 10%. Departing from the arguments presented by WEG the ITAC recommended the reduction of the import duty set on ethylene-alpha-olefin copolymers.
