On 20 April 2017, the Commission posted a notice to economic operators (2017/C 123/11) informing them that the Commission has received requests in accordance with the administrative arrangements foreseen in the Commission communication concerning autonomous tariff suspensions and quotas (2011/C 363/02) for the January round of 2018.

The list of the products for which a duty suspension is requested is now available on the Commission’s thematic (Europa) website on the customs union.

Economic operators are also informed that the deadline for objections against new requests to reach the Commission, via the national administrations, is 16 June 2017 which is the date of the second scheduled meeting of the Economic Tariff Questions Group.

Interested operators are advised to consult the list regularly in order to be informed on the status of the requests.

More information on the autonomous tariff suspension procedure can be found on the Europa website.
