Duty Free Imports of Norwegian Water & Other Non Alcoholic Drinks

11 January 2010

Commission Regulation 1255/2009 has withdrawn the quantitative restriction on duty-free imports of water and some non alcoholic drinks originating in Norway.

The EU-Norway bilateral free trade agreement provided that goods under CN codes 2202.10.00 (waters, including mineral waters and aerated waters, containing added sugar or other sweetening matter or flavoured) and ex 2202.90.10 (other non-alcoholic beverages containing sugar (sucrose or invert sugar)) that originated in Norway could enter the EU duty-free only within the limits of a duty-free quota. If that quota was exceeded by 31 October of the previous year then import duties would have to be paid on those products.

However, by 31 October 2009, the quota had not been exceeded and under the EU-Norway agreement this means that for the period 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2010, products classified under these codes shall be imported duty free on an unlimited basis.

If you think that your goods may qualify for duty-free status contact us on (01905) 619229 or email us at mail@internationaltradesolutions.co.uk to discuss what you must do to import your goods duty-free.
