Regulation (EU) 2022/2583 - adopted by the Council of the European Union on 19 December 2022 - introducing amendments to Regulation (EU) 2021/2278 suspending the Common Customs Tariff (CCT) duties referred to in Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 on certain agricultural and industrial products.
Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 established the Union Customs Code (UCC), setting out the general rules and procedures applicable to goods brought into or taken out of the customs territory of the European Union (EU). Regulation (EU) 2021/2278 suspended the CCT duties referred to in that Regulation on certain agricultural and industrial products. This was in order to ensure sufficient and uninterrupted supplies of those products which are insufficiently produced or not produced at all in the EU, and to avoid any disturbances on the market for such products.
This Act is updated every six months to accommodate the needs of the EU industry. The European Commission reviewed all requests from the EU Member States for autonomous tariff suspensions. Following this review, the Commission considered the suspension of duties to be justified for some new products, and found the need to modify the conditions in terms of product description and classification for some other products. Some products are withdrawn from tariff suspension.
The draft law was tabled by the European Commission on 15 November 2022. It was adopted by the Council of the European Union on 19 December 2022 and published in the Official Journal on 30 December 2022.
