The products subject to the duty are classified under the following HS code: 8712.0010.
 
A minimum FOB export value has been set by the Argentinian authorities for each good depending on its technical characteristics. The minimum FOB export values range from USD 23.00 per unit to USD 65.00 per unit depending on the characteristics of the bicycle. For more details, see Annex 1 of Resolution 4/2002.

This duty follows a review requested by the Industrial Chamber of Motorcycle, Bicycle, wheeled Vehicle and Related (Cámara Industrial de la Motocicleta, Bicicleta, Rodados y Afines). A review was then initiated by the Argentinian authorities on May 18, 2007 (Resolution 332/2007, 18.05.2007). Resolution 332/2007 was published in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic on June 1, 2007.
