Council Regulation of 21 December 2017 updating Regulation (EU) No 1387/2013 on the suspension of autonomous Common Customs Tariff duties.
Certain agricultural and industrial products are not produced in the European Union, or not in sufficient quantity. To ensure sufficient and uninterrupted supplies and to prevent market disturbance for these products, Regulation (EU) No 1387/2013 partially or totally suspended some autonomous Common Customs Tariff duties. The Regulation is updated every six months to accommodate the needs of EU industry.
The European Commission, assisted by the Economic Tariff Questions Group (ETQG), reviews all Member State requests for autonomous Common Customs Tariff duties to be suspended temporarily. Following this review, the Commission considers that a suspension of duties is justified for some new products currently not listed in the Annex to the Regulation. The conditions governing the description, classification or end-use requirement of some other products should be changed. Products for which a tariff suspension is no longer in the EU’s economic interest should be withdrawn.
