Brazil charges duty on Atanor glyphosate

Brazilian import authorities have disqualified Argentine agrochemical company Atanor’s (Buenos Aires) certificate of origin for imports of its glyphosate herbicide. Brazil and Mercosur customs union trade rules require that 60% of the product be nationally sourced, newswire Agrolink notes. The authorities say that the tested batches did not prove Argentine production. The company has to pay import duties before its products can be exported to Brazil, while the authorities will deny it preferential clearance on glyphosate imports until it demonstrates that production has been modified to meet the trade rules, the official gazette reports. If the company cannot prove Argentine origin, it will pay a 14% duty on top of prevailing Brazilian anti-dumping duties, and potential fines, Agrolink adds.
