Import tariff quota

On 5 October 2011, the Brazilian Foreign Trade Council (Camex) issued Resolution no. 72 introducing various tariff rate quotas:

  • 6-Hexanolactam (NCM 2933.71.00): 2%, quota of 45,000 tonnes, for 12 months
  • Stainless steel strips with a thickness of 0.5 mm and a width of 60 mm (NCM 7220.90.00): 2%, quota of 70 tonnes, for 4 months
  • Cylindrical sections of stainless (CrMoV) steel, high temperature resistant, of specified dimensions (NCM 7326.90.90): 2%, quota of 1,500 tonnes, for 6 months.

The latter quota was revoked by Resolution no. 87 of 9 November 2011, effective 10 November 2011 (see "Related measures").
According to the latest tariff information reported to the WTO, Brazil applied average tariffs ranging from 24% to 35% on the stated tariff lines in 2010. The measure took effect on 06 October 2011 and lasted until 05 October 2012 at the latest.
