On December 7, 2016, MERCOSUR issued Directive 10/16 allowing Argentina to temporary reduce the import tariffs on disperse dyes and preparations (NCM 3204.11.00). The new import tariff was set at 2% for a period of twelve months and for a quota of 1,000 tonnes. The previous import tariff was set at 12% FOB value.
Although this measure has been agreed at the supranational level, at the time of reporting there is only evidence of Argentinian implementation.
