In brief: Brazil zeroes import tax on syringes and needles

* The Brazilian government has zeroed the import tax on syringes and needles, effective until 30 June. These products were previously subject to a 16% import tax. This brings the number of products on which import taxes have been temporarily zeroed in the context of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic to 303. The chamber of foreign trade (Camex), responsible for this decision, has also suspended a surcharge (part of anti-dumping measures) on disposable syringes imported from China for the same duration. These measures are part of the government’s efforts to guarantee a supply of syringes and needles as it prepares to vaccinate the population against Covid-19, which have included restricting the export of these products.
