Collegium of the Eurasian Economic Union. 2018. Decision dated August 28, 2018 N 141 "On the establishment of tariff quotas for 2019 in relation to certain types of agricultural goods imported into the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union, as well as the volume of tariff quotas for these goods, imported into member states Eurasian Economic Union" (Решение Коллегии Евразийской экономической комиссии от 28 августа 2018 г. N 141 "Об установлении на 2019 год тарифных квот в отношении отдельных видов сельскохозяйственных товаров, ввозимых на таможенную территорию Евразийского экономического союза, а также объемов тарифных квот в отношении этих товаров, ввозимых на территории государств – членов Евразийского экономического союза"), https://docs.eaeunion.org/docs/ru-ru/01418700/clcd_30082018_141

Import tariff quota

On 28 August 2018, the Eurasian Economic Union set tariff quotas for the imports of agricultural goods in 2019. The only change from the quota of the preceding year is the increase of Kyrgyzstan's bovine meat quota from 3,5 thousand tonnes to 7 thousand tonnes (tariff lines 0201 10 000 1, 0201 20 200 1, 0201 20 300 1, 0201 20 500 1, 0201 20 900 1, 0201 30 000 4). 

The present measure does not alter either the existing in-quota or out-of-quota tariffs. The former are listed in the EEU Unified Customs Tariff, while the latter seems to be listed in the national legislation of each country. 

Since the in-quota tariffs are invariably lower than out-of-quota ones, the change will affect imports positively.

Import tariff quota

On 28 August 2018, the Eurasian Economic Union decreased in Kyrgyzstan's poultry quota, from 58 thousand to 56 thousand tonnes (tariff headings under 0207).

The present measure does not alter either the existing in-quota or out-of-quota tariffs. The former are listed in the EEU Unified Customs Tariff, while the latter seems to be listed in the national legislation of each country. 

Since the in-quota tariffs are invariably lower than out-of-quota ones, this change will affect imports negatively.
