Import tariff quota

On 28 October 2011, the European Commission issued Regulation 1095/2011, amending Regulation 543/2011 and adjusted the trigger levels for cucumbers, artichokes, clementines, mandarins and oranges.
 
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 in the case of artichokes, oranges, clementines and mandarins but increased in the case of cucumbers. It is uncertain which effect will be dominant, hence the measure is considered potentially trade distorting. The measure entered into force on 1 November 2011
 
Update:
With the introduction of Regulation 366/2012 and 988/2012, all trigger levels of the above mentioned goods have been changed. Therefore, the measure is considered to be expired with the introduction of Regulation 988/2012 in October 2012.
