Trade and Quotas

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. More information on Tariff rate quotas can be found here.


BREXIT TRQs APPORTIONMENT AS FROM 1 JANUARY 2021
The Commission has published a table covering the apportionment of tariff rate quotas for certain agricultural products included in the WTO schedule of the Union, following the end of the transition period concerning the United Kingdom’s relationship with the Union. The table concerns the apportionment of TRQs whose quota period is ongoing on 1 January 2021 in accordance with Article 1(3) of Regulation (EU) 2019/386 as amended by Regulation (EU) 2020/2099 of 15 December 2020. The table published follows the methodology laid down in Article 1 of Regulation (EU) 2019/216 of the European Parliament and of the Council[1] providing that the said tariff rate quotas included in the Union's schedule of concessions and commitments annexed to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 are to be apportioned between the Union and the United Kingdom based on the EU-27 share in the quota usage set out in the Annex to that Regulation.
