Brazil's list of dutiable products in for open consultation

Keywords: Tags  Brazilian duties, aluminum, steel, copper, cold-rolled steel, galvanized steel, silicon steel, galvalume heavy plate

SÃO PAULO — A public consultation will soon be opened by Brazil’s Chamber of Foreign Trade (Camex) on the country’s new list of 100 products to have higher import tariffs in the country.

Private companies and industry groups, including Brazilian steelmakers’ association IABr, sent lists with proposed products to be included. Camex received requests for a total of 262 products to be included in the tariff list.

The first list of 100 products, which became effective October 2012 without any public input, included steel, aluminum and copper products.

Affected steel products included hot-rolled coil, heavy plate, wire rod, stainless steel sheet and coil, alloy bars, grain-oriented silicon steel, pipe and drawn products.

Duties rose to 25 percent in most cases from 12 percent.

Cold-rolled coil, hot-dipped galvanized coil, boron-containing heavy plate, Galvalume and pre-painted steel are likely to be included in the new list, as is rebar, market players told AMM sister publication Steel First.

Interested parties will have 30 days from the date of the resolution’s publication to express their views about the products.
