Import quota increased
Description
Increased the zero-duty quota for high quality beef from 20 000 mt to 45 000 mt. Further, the European Commission changed the quota management system to a first come, first served approach. Previously (from 2009), the quota had been controlled by issuing import licenses on a monthly basis.
