Rules on trade with Third Countries

The imports are mainly organized by a system of quotas with specific country allocations. Quota volumes may change per year. Also, due to accessions, the quota quantities may increase. Therefore, every year a new regulation is published with the new quantities and replaces the previous regulation.

The use of each quota is available on the Commission's website.
