Import quota

According to a WTO report, temporary import quotas were in force in the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia from August 2012 to November 2014*. 
 
The affected products were corrosion-resistant pipes and tubes with a diameter of 426 mm or less (HS 7304.11.00; 7304.41.00; 7304.49.10; 7304.49.93; 7304.49.95; 7304.49.99; 7306.11.10; 7306.11.90; 7306.40.20; 7306.40.80). 
 
*In the G-20 Trade Measures Report (Mid-May 2012 to Mid-October 2012), the exact dates for this regime remained unspecified. Other official source did not document the period either. Therefore, it has been assumed that the temporary measure comprises the entire period.
