Collegium of the Eurasian Economic Union. 2019. Decision dated 31 July 2019 N 127 "On the establishment of tariff quotas for 2020 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" ("Об установлении на 2020 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/01222608/clcd_02082019_127

Import tariff quota

On 31 July 2019, the Eurasian Economic Union announced 2020 import tariff quotas on meat and dairy products. The Union decreased Kyrgyzstan's beef quota from 7 to 5 thousand tonnes compared to the preceding year (tariff lines under 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, this change will affect imports negatively.

Import tariff quota

On 31 July 2019, the Eurasian Economic Union announced 2020 import tariff quotas on meat and dairy products. The Union increased Kyrgyzstan's poultry quota from 56 to 58 thousand tonnes compared to the preceding year (tariff lines 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 positively.

Import tariff quota

On 31 July 2019, the Eurasian Economic Union announced 2020 import tariff quotas on meat and dairy products. The Union reduced Russia's 430-thousand-tonne pork quota (tariff lines under subheading 0203) to 0. From 2020 on, the tariff quota on pork has thus been terminated. 

As the government announced later, it was replaced by a 25% ad-valorem tariff. The previous tariffs were 0% in-quota and 65% out-of-quota.
