Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

 On 2 October 2014, the Czech Republic introduced government regulation 211/2014 requiring importers of certain agricultural products to report the arrival of their goods two days before they start to sell them. Previously, the prior notification was needed only 24 hours before the start of the sale.
Furthermore, the regulation introduces the requirement for the importer to report the expected price at which he shall sell his products.
These goods include peaches, pears, apples, strawberries, apricots, plums, prunes and cherries as well as onion, garlic, parsley roots, carrots, celeriac, tomatoes, peppers, lettuces, potatoes, cabbages along with other vegetables (cf. par. 2 of the regulation for complete list).
The head of the Czech Vegetable Growers Association was cited in the media saying the move was necessary as Czech producers have suffered from dumping prices of Polish agricultural products after the introduction of the Russian import ban on the related goods.
The regulation came into effect on 3 October 2014 and expired on 31 December 2014.
