Import tariff quota

On 28 August 2012, the European Commission issued Regulation 781/2012, amending Regulation 543/2011 and adjusting the trigger levels for apples and tomatoes.
 
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 increased for both products. The measure is therefore considered trade liberalising. The measure entered into force on 29 August 2012
 
Update:
With the introduction of Regulations 353/2013 and 979/2013, the tariff quotas for tomatoes and apples have been amended and this measure is therefore suspended with the entry into force of Regulation 979/2013 on 12 October 2013
