EU Rice Import Tariffs for MY 05/06
EU Rice Import Tariffs for MY 05/06

The European Commission has informed EU Member State governments through the Cereals Management Committee that it has reached an agreement with Thailand to reduce the EU milled rice tariff.

The Agreement, which still needs to be approved by both the EU and the Thai government, sets out the following provisions:

· EU bound tariff rates (i.e. the maximum tariff the EU could apply) will be EUR 65/MT for brown rice, EUR 175/MT for milled rice and EUR 128/MT for broken rice.

· The applied tariff (i.e. the tariff the EU will actually apply to imports) for milled rice will be based on the previous years milled rice import volume. If the volume exceeds 387,743 MT then the tariff will be EUR 175/MT, if it is less, then the tariff will be EUR 145/MT.

· The duty will be set twice a year for six months at a time. In September, based on the previous years import volume, and in March based on the six months of imports from the preceding September to February period. For this calculation, the reference quantity will be 182,239 MT.

· The EU will open a new Tariff Rate Quota (TRQ) of 13,500 MT at zero duty, of which 4,313 MT will be allocated to Thailand1. There is no indication how the remaining tranche of this quota will be allocated or whether it will be available on an MFN basis.

· The applied tariff for broken rice will be reduced from EUR 128/MT to EUR 65/MT. An existing TRQ of 80,000 MT shall be expanded to 100,000 MT with a duty of EUR 45/MT. (Note 7,281 MT of the original quota is allocated to the US).
