Introduction to the Tariff

What is a Tariff quota?

Tariff quotas (TQs) allow certain goods to be imported into the European Union at a lower level of duty than would usually apply.

TQs may only exist for a limited period and are not the same as Import Licence Quotas, which are designed to restrict the amount of goods that can be imported.

You can find out whether the goods you are importing are eligible for a TQ by looking in volume two of the Tariff. Find out more about the Tariff.
