Description
Decided that imports of selected classes of husked rice (SAC codes 100620000091 and 1006200099), originating in countries not party to a preferential trade agreement with Costa Rica, would accrue an additional import tariff of 11.67 percent, after cumulative imports of these classes (starting from 1 January 2018) exceeded 6 366.83 tonnes. The surcharge will apply to imports in excess of this volume, and will be levied on top of a 35 percent import duty accrued by these classes. The measure is effective from 21 September 2018 to 31 December 2018.
