Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

On 17 December 2015 the Ministry of Trade of the Republic of Belarus approved Decree No. 33. It revokes the exclusive right of the state to import champagne (code 2204 10 110 0), wine (code 2204 21), cognac (code 2208 20), whiskey (code 2208 30), rum (code 2208 40) and gin (codes 2208 50 110 0, 2208 50 190 0) in 2016, and grants it to private enterprises. Hence, this measure is liberalising because in Belarus the import of alcohol is an exclusive right of the state and of state-owned enterprises.
