EU: tariff quotas for fresh and frozen beef and veal and pigmeat originating in Canada

Today, 21 September, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada enters into force provisionally.

Thursday 21 September 2017 (9 months 3 days ago)

The provisional application of CETA on 21 September follows its approval by EU Member States, expressed in the Council, and by the European Parliament.

It will only enter into force fully and definitively, however, when all EU Member States have ratified the Agreement. The Commission will work with EU Member States and Canada to ensure its smooth and effective implementation.

Following this provisional entry into force, the Official Journal of the European Union has publicated Commission Implementig Regulation (EU) 2017/1585 of 19 September 2017 opening and providing for the administration of Union tariff quotas for fresh and frozen beef and veal and pigmeat originating in Canada and amending Regulation (EC) No 442/2009 and Implementing Regulations (EU) No 481/2012 and (EU) No 593/2013.

This Regulation opens and manages annual import tariff quotas for the products indicated in Annex I, for the period from 1 January until 31 December. For year 2017 the quota period is opened from the date of application of this Regulation to 31 December 2017.

Annex 2-A to the Agreement provides that, beginning in year 1, the quantities established for a pigmeat tariff quota have to be increased by 4 624 metric tonnes product weight (5 549 metric tonnes carcass weight equivalent) pursuant to the volume for pigmeat products originating in Canada established in Commission Regulation (EC) No 442/2009.
