The safeguard investigation on imports of Indica rice from Cambodia and Myanmar was initiated on 16 March 2017. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheadings: 1006.30.27, 1006.30.48, 1006.30.67 and 1006.30.98. This investigation follows the application lodged on 16 February 2018 by Italy. 

It should be noted that this is not a traditional safeguards investigation as it relates specifically to the GSP benefits received by Cambodia and Myanmar. Since tariff related GSP benefits are a unilateral matter for the EU, this measure has been classified here as an import tariff measure.
