Import tariff quota

On 25 July 2011, the European Commission (EC) issued Regulation 726/2011, amending Regulation 543/2011 (already mentioned in other measures) and adjusted the trigger level for apples (HS 0808 10 80). The trigger level has been decreased by 246'185 tonnes.
 
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. This measure is therefore considered trade distorting.
The changes will come into effect as of 1 September 2011.
 
The regulation was adjusted by regulation 1325/2011 setting out a new trigger level for apples. This measure is therefore obsolete with the introduction of the new regulation on 1 January 2012.
