Full list of all daily SIV changes
On 7 June 2011, the EC introduced (according to Regulation No.543/2011) a new scheme of minimum import prices (so-called standard import values, SIVs) for certainfruits and vegetables. Thus, the scheme works as a tariff if imported goods have prices below the SIV. Furthermore, SIVs differ each day and therefore involve priceuncertainties for exporters and importers. Exporters may ship goods whenthe SIVs are low but the goods may only arrive at a price peak. Finally, import licenses are required and thus lead to additional bureaucratic delays and costs.
