Import tariff quota
On 11 October 2013, the European Commission published Regulation 979/2013, adjusting the trigger level formandarins, clementines, artichokes, oranges, pears, lemons, apples and courgettes (initially regulated in Regulation 543/2011).
The trigger level defines the preferential import tariff quota. Imports above the trigger level will be subject to additional duties. Therefore, an increase in the trigger level is seen as an indirect decrease in the import duties, while a decrease in the trigger level represents an augmentation in the import duties.
The trigger level has been decreased for all products with the exception of courgettes. The total decrease ( more than 300,000 tonnes) exceeds the 27,000 tonnes increase in the case of courgettes.
The measure entered into force on 12 October 2013
