Changes to arrangements regarding certain imports from Egypt

09 July 2010

From 1 June, certain preferential arrangements (including duty rates and quotas) have changed for a range of products imported from Egypt in Chapters 1-38 inclusive of the UK Tariff.

The majority of Tariff headings now attract a nil preferential rate of duty under the revised arrangements. There are some cases where the nil rate is only available within annual first-come-first-served quotas. There have also been some changes to the rate of duty payable once a quota has been exhausted. In the case of Oranges for example (Heading 0805) the full rate of duty is now payable once the quota has been exhausted whereas previously a small reduction in the full rate of duty had applied in such circumstances. For full details of the new arrangements see Council Decision 2010/240/EC.
