Trade

Agricultural products provide an important positive contribution to the EU trade balance. Under the Customs Union, Member States report on all goods imported into, and exported from, the European Union.

Some products are subject to quotas, which means that reduced tariff rates apply up to a fixed amount of goods imported. Depending on the product quota may be allocated proportionally, or on a first-come-first-served basis.
