Import tariff quota

On 30 August 2016, the Eurasian Economic Council set tariff quotas for the imports of certain agricultural goods in 2017. The only change from the preceding year's quota is allocation of 3.5 thousand tonnes of pork to Kyrgyzstan, a member that joined in August 2015. Kyrgyzstan's quota for all other quota-applicable agricultural goods was set at zero, meaning that the country will have to apply the much higher out-of-quota import tariff. 

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 are listed in the national legislation of each country.
