SAO PAULO (ICIS news)--Brazil has reduced the import tariff of bisphenol A (BPA) to 2% from 12%, the nation's Chamber of Foreign Commerce (Camex) said on Friday.
The tariff reduction will last for six months, and it will apply only to the first 3,000 tonnes of a shipment, Camex said.
The tariff reduction was based on a Mercosur resolution, which allows special measures to be taken that would guarantee normal supplies in member countries, the chamber said.
