Import tariff

On 22 February 2019, the EEU introduced a temporary waiver of the 5% import duty on polypropylene yarn (tariff line 5402 63 000). The waiver is in force between 22 March 2019 and 1 March 2020. In the same document, the EEU modified its tariff nomenclature to distinguish between the polypropylene yarn used for carpet production and other types of yarn, with the waiver applying only to the yarn used in carpet production.
