MERCOSUR. Consejo del Mercado Común. Decisión 28/15. Available at: http://gd.mercosur.int/SAM%5CGestDoc%5Cpubweb.nsf/5954CD275347F343032581AA005491AD/$File/DEC_028-2015_ES_AEC%20Juguetes.pdf
On July 16, 2015, the Council of the Common Market of Mercosur issued Decision no. 28/15, allowing member states to temporarily modify import duties established on the Common External Tariff for fourteen 8-digits tariff lines relating to children scooters and tricycles.
Member States can apply this Decision since July 1, 2015, and will cease to be in force on 31 December 2021.
The introduction of this measure creates uncertainty in the tariff treatment which is detrimental to firms seeking to export to these countries.
