Import tariff quota

On 11 November 2009, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution no. 75 reducing the import tariffs on terephtalic acid and its salts (NCM 2917.36.00) to 2% for a year. In addition, it set tariff-free quotas for three other goods, for a period of six months:

  • 6-Hexano-lactam (NCM 2933.71.00), to a quota of 22,500 tonnes
  • One-sided coated moisture and alkaline resistant paper for use in the production of beer bottle labels (NCM 4810.13.90), to a quota of 5,000 tonnes
  • Hydraulic jacks with a lifting capacity of 500 tonnes with specified characteristics (NCM 8425.42.00), to a quota of four units.

The measure took effect on 24 November 2009 and lasted until 23 November 2010 for the the tariff reduction, and until 23 May 2010 for the tariff-free quota with the exception of the quota on coated beer bottle label paper, which was cancelled on 17 May 2010 by Resolution no. 29 of 2010.
