Import tariff quota

On 9 July 2020, the Trade Commission of MERCOSUR has adopted Directive 38/20 allowing Argentina to establish a temporary 2% import duty on gluten-free infant formulas classified under tariff subheading NCM 2106.90.90. The new duty applies to a quota of 100 tonnes. 

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 16.8%.

Directive 38/20 only applies to Argentina for a period of 12 months.
