On 6 November 2008, the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan initiated (according to Decree No. 1015) a safeguard investigation concerning imports of certain confectionaries. 
These goods are listed in Annexe 1 of the decree at the 10-digit HS code level of detail.
On 26 September 2011, the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan (according to Resolution No. 1055) introduced protective import duties on confectioneries with the following tariff code classification:

  • 1704 90 710 0, 1704 90 750 0: 30%, but no less than 0.27 EUR per kg;
  • 1806 90 110 0, 1806 90 190 0: 49%, but no less than 1.0 EUR per kg;

This state measure shall remain in force for a period of 36 months.

On 18 November 2011, the Customs Union Commission issued Decree 856 replacing and thereby terminating the above safeguard duty, see related state act.

As such, the above safeguard duty was terminated on 11 January 2012.
