Import tariff quota

On 22 December 2009, the European Council introduced a variety of tariff quotas for certain agricultural and industrial products. Specified quantities of the eligible products may thus be imported duty free. The measure will apply from 1 January 2010 and be valid for the whole year 2010.
 
The reason for the introduction of these import duty quotas is to avoid shortage of certain industrial and agricultural products needed for processing within the European Union. The scheme is accessible for all importers and does not discriminate against certain countries.
 
The complete list of eligible goods can be found in Annex I of the Council Regulation (7/2010)
 
The list of eligible products in the Regulation has been amended several times between 2010-2013 by: (starting with the most recent:)
Regulation 627/2013 of 27 June 2013
Regulation 1231/2012 of 17 December 2012
Regulation 551/2012 of 21 June 2012
Regulation 1359/2011 of 19 December 2011
Regulation 630/2011 of 21 June 2011
Regulation 264/2010 of 20 December 2010
Regulation 565/2010 of 29 June 2010
 
The list of affected products is based on the list of products in the initial Regulation 7/2010
 
The Regulation is going to be replaced on 1 January 2014 (related measures)
