The allocation process of import or export Tariff Rate Quotas (TRQs) is managed via the issuing of import or export licences.

If would like to be kept informed about updates, please subscribe to the email alerts


Tariff quota allocations are calculated based on the quantities available within the tariff quota and the quantity applied for, as notified to the Commission by national authorities.

Once the allocations are calculated by the Commission and made public (see links below), member states must issue import or export licences for the quantities applied for within the respective tariff quotas.

Information is also available on licences that have been suspended, withdrawn or reinstated.
