ANNOUNCEMENT 26 Jan 2015In January 2015, the European Commission announced a change in import tariff quotas.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
EU regulation 114/2015
On 26 January 2015, the European Commission announced regulation 114/2015 implementing larger poultry meat tariff rate quotas on the United States of America for the period between 1 April and 30 June 2015. The quantities were raised, since "the quantities covered by import licence applications lodged from 1 to 7 December 2014 for the subperiod 1 January to 31 March 2015 are smaller than those available" (preamble to the regulation).
The added quota totalled over 16 million kg of poultry meat.
The regulation came into force on 27 January 2015.
