Status of EU TRQ Imports (Wheat, Barley, Maize), Ukraine TRQ, EU Cereals Import Export Data

Principal Fixed Tarrif Quotas for Cereals
Principal fixed tariff import quotas for cereals Tariff Rate Quotas (TRQs) were introduced in 2003 for barley and low and medium quality wheat in response to large imports from the Community of Independent States. The duty on these had been calculated on the basis of higher US prices and they were able to enter the EU at very competitive rates. A duty-free maize quota was also introduced in 2006, following the 2004 enlargement. All three import quotas are managed on a weekly basis according to the "simultaneous examination method". Applicants may submit only one license application per week to the appropriate Member State. Applications received by Member States are then submitted each week to the European Commission, which adopts a coefficient of attribution if the requests exceed the available quantity. Within the Commission, this system is managed by the Directorate General for Agriculture and Rural Development.

Other Tarrif Quotas
Several other tariff rate quotas for cereals and related products exist. These are managed on a "first come first served" basis, by which requests for use of the quota are accepted in chronological order of the day of acceptance of customs declarations. This system is managed by the Taxation and Customs Union Directorate General of the European Commission.
