On 17 November 2014 the European Commission presented a proposal for a Council Regulation amending Regulation (EU) No 1388/2013 on the management of autonomous tariff quotas. The Council of the European Union adopted the new Regulation on 15 December.
Autonomous tariff quotas are needed for certain products where production in the Union is insufficient to meet the needs of the user industry in the Union. In response to requests from several Member States, the Commission, together with the government experts concerned, considered whether to open autonomous tariff quotas for certain agricultural and industrial products.
In December 2013 the Council adopted Regulation (EU) No 1388/2013 opening and providing for the management of autonomous tariff quotas of the Union for certain agricultural and industrial products so that Union demand for the products in question could be met under the most favourable conditions.
For reasons of clarity it was decided to publish a consolidated version of the Annex to the proposed Regulation which will fully replace the Annex set out in Regulation (EU) No 1388/2013.
