Import tariff quota

On 3 July 2020, the Trade Commission of MERCOSUR has adopted Directive 33/20 allowing Argentina to establish a temporary 2% import duty on urinary catheters classified under tariff subheading NCM 9018.39.29. The new duty applies to a quota of 6,000,000 units. 

Previously to this legislation, no tariff rate quota applied to this product. 

According to the WTO tariff download facility, the applicable import tariff outside the quota is 12.9%.

Directive 33/20 only applies to Argentina for a period of 12 months.
