N 99 "Об установлении на 2016 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"), http://www.eurasiancommission.org/ru/act/trade/catr/ttr/Documents/quota%202016.pdf

Import tariff quota

On 18 August 2015, the Eurasian Economic Union set tariff quotas for the imports of agricultural goods in 2016. The only change from the quota of the preceding year is the increase of Kazakhstan's bovine meat quota from 10.02 to 21 thousand tonnes (tariff headings 0201 and 0202). 

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.
