On March 14, 2011, the Government of Argentina adopted reference values applicable to the importation of apples and pears from Brazil, Russia and other countries.
The products subject to this measure are classified under the following tariff lines of MERCOSUR's Harmonized System: 0808.10.00 and 0808.20.10.
Argentina introduced reference values of precautionary nature for exportgoods in 2005 (in Spanish: valores referenciales de carácterpreventivo). The stated purpose is to safeguard the revenue derived fromthe payment of export duties (see WTO Trade Policy Review).The reference values are based on free on board (FOB) prices in USD.

These reference prices entered into force on March 16, 2011. The measure was replaced by General Resolution 3145 on 7 July 2011 (see "Related Measures").
