Uruguay Import Regs.: Used Equipment

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 7:19 am

Uruguay is a good market for both new and used equipment and machinery. Often, equipment considered obsolete in the U.S. may still be sold to local industry. The valuation of used capital equipment is established by Decree 567 of 1994, which states that a discount will apply depending the age of the good,i.e., the used item is two years old will be subject to a 20% discount from price of the product new, and so on. The documentation must be presented to verify the age of the item.

The importation of remanufactured, rebuilt, and/or used motor vehicle parts is not prohibited in Uruguay. Such imports, however, are rare, but permitted by customs on a case-by-case basis.

The Uruguayan Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining issued Decree no.248/002 which prohibits the importation of used vehicles, motorcyles and auto parts for 180 days; beginning on June 26, 2002.

Prohibited used vehicles correspond to the following tariff classification codes:

Those excluded from this short-term import prohibition have the following tariff classification codes:

Prohibited imports of used motorcycles correspond to tariff classification codes:

Prohibited used auto parts correspond to tariff classification code (including chassis and other used auto parts):

Other vehicles exempt from this short-term import prohibition include sports vehicles and vehicles classified as "Collector's Models" that are over 20 years old and are going to be used either in competitions or exhibitions. The importation of these vehicles will be handled by the National Management of Industries. The final users fo these vehicles will not be able to import other vehicles before a period of 3 years.

New vehicles are defined by the National Management of Industries as those made the year they were imported, or the previous year, and having 0 km.
