The EU will adjust the tariff quotas for beef and sheep by Brexit

The Commission has tabled a proposal for a Council Regulation authorizing the opening of negotiations on the allocation of tariff quotas of the European Union, included in the agenda of the World Trade Organization (WTO).

According to ANAFRIC, in the meat sector, with regard to the frozen beef quota (54,875t), the EU should retain 79.7%, which would mean 43,732t. In the case of sheep the New Zealand tariff quota is 228,244T, which would mean that the EU should retain 50%, that is, 114,116t.

What is intended by this proposal is that the distribution of the tariff quotas included in the list of WTO concessions and commitments is divided between the EU and the United Kingdom.
