General information about preferential arrangements and applying for import tariff quotas

Preferential arrangements

In some cases, when importing agricultural products from third countries, preferential treatment is applied which is often tied to a certain maximum amount, known as a tariff quota. Tariff quotas allow for reduced customs duties when importing products to the EU. Once the quota for any particular product is filled, imports from third countries may continue but will be subject to full import duties and other levies.

Tariff quotas may be divided into quotas based on multilateral or bilateral agreements on the one hand and quotas based on unilateral arrangements on the other. Agreement quotas are based on preferential treatment agreed between the European Union and third countries. Examples of this are the quotas based on Europe agreements, the ACT-EC Agreement and the Euro-Mediterranean agreements. Import quotas only apply to products that have been shown to originate in the country concerned. WTO (formerly GATT) quotas are also agreement-based quotas; they constitute a group of their own in the tariff quota system. Unilateral concessions granted by the European Union allow for partial or complete exemption from import duties for products that are not produced in the European Union in sufficient quantities.

Various methods are employed in applying for quotas and in apportioning quantities among applicants. Quotas on agricultural products are quotas that are managed either through an application procedure or with a quota register. The Market Department of the Finnish Food Authority is responsible for administering the application procedure for tariff quotas for agricultural products in Finland. The ‘first-come first-served’ tariff quotas are administered by the Foreign Trade and Taxation Department of Finnish Customs using a quota register. The contact details for the Finnish Food Authority and Finnish Customs are provided at the end of this guide. The purpose of these guidelines is to provide the reader with an overview of tariff quotas, which are administered via an application procedure using AGRIM import licences, and the application of such quotas in Finland. All of the guidelines concerning AGRIM import licences are available on the internet at www.ruokavirasto.fi/agrim, and all of the guidelines on AGREX export licences are available at www.ruokavirasto.fi/agrex.

Regulatory basis

This guide is based on numerous regulations on specific product sectors, referenced in the chapters dedicated to the specific product sectors. The guide supplements the guide on applications for import and export licences for agricultural products, which provides readers with a better understanding of the instructions set out herein. The application guide is available at www.ruokavirasto.fi/agrim. In addition, the following regulations apply to tariff quotas:

  • Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/760, of 17 December 2019, supplementing Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the rules for the administration of import and export tariff quotas subject to licences and supplementing Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the lodging of securities in the administration of tariff quota.
  • Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/761 of 17 December 2019, laying down rules for the application of Regulations (EU) No 1306/2013, (EU) No 1308/2013 and (EU) No 510/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the management system of tariff quotas with licence
  • Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council, in Appendix 1, lists the products that fall within the scope of the common organisation of the markets.
  • Commission Regulations (EU) 2016/1237 and 2016/1239 on the import licence system for agricultural products apply to all AGRIM import licences.
  • Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 907/2014 of 11 March 2014, supplementing Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to paying agencies and other bodies, financial management, clearance of accounts, securities and use of euro.

The regulations of the European Council, Parliament and Commission are legally binding on Member States. The information in this guide is based on the aforementioned regulations, but it is not legally binding. European Union legislation is constantly evolving, and any amendments are directly applicable in all Member States, including Finland. The provisions of regulations always take precedence over these guidelines. Irrespective of any updates to this publication, it is possible that the information herein is not always up to date. Information on legal amendments is published first in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ). Current legislation is also available at the same address.

Need for AGRIM import licences

AGRIM import licences entitle and oblige a party to import a product under a specific CN code from a specific country or group of countries during the period of validity of the licence.

The chapters of this guide present the codes and descriptions of goods, as well as the import quota numbers, which are administered using AGRIM quota import licences. Some quotas include several possible CN codes. Conduct a TARIC search to obtain more detailed descriptions of goods.

AGRIM import licences are not required for imports of goods for which there is no entitlement to preferential treatment (with the exception of the CN codes 1006 30, 1006 20 and 1006 40 for rice).

Before you apply to the Finnish Food Authority for an AGRIM quota import licence

  • The applicant must be on the VAT register in Finland.
  • The applicant must have a valid EORI number. Refer to the Finnish Customs website for information about EORI registration.
  • The applicant must register as a client of the Finnish Food Authority’s Market Department and apply for access rights to the digital import and export licence application service. See the guide on applications for import and export licences for agricultural products for instructions.
  • The applicant must satisfy the conditions and special requirements associated with the specific tariff quota and deliver any evidence of the completed transaction and/or reference quantity, as well as any original documents issued by a third country in relation to the licence application.
  • Certain over-demanded LORI import quotas for poultrymeat and garlic carry the requirement of mandatory LORI registration on the Commission’s register and/or reference quantity requirements.
  • The applicant must pledge any applicable euro-denominated security. The guide provides information on the required amount of security for specific quotas. See the guide on applications for import and export licences for agricultural products for instructions on pledging security.
  • The applicant must check the Commission’s website to determine whether the amount in the application is available in the quota for the specific quota period. On the website, select Allocation coefficients for import tariff rate quotas (import quotas). Use the browser’s search functionality to find the correct quota and the current quota year. The field Available before allocation (kg) states the quantity that can be applied for in the given sub-period. If the quota quantity for a sub-period or monthly applications is exhausted, the Commission will no longer accept any new applications until the end of the tariff quota period or sub-period. For each quota number, check whether there any restrictions on the minimum or maximum quantities that can be sought in a licence application.
  • Applications for AGRIM quota import licences should be submitted digitally on the import and export licence application service

Proof of trade

In order to minimise speculative applications, one of the special conditions for applying for a licence within certain tariff quotas is the past experience and involvement of the operator in the trade concerned with third countries. For this reason, operators are required to provide proof of minimum experience in trading with third countries in these quotas. The applicant must provide the Finnish Food Authority with proof of trade along with its first import licence application. Operators must provide proof of trade by any of the following means:

  • customs data showing release for free circulation in the Union and containing, as required by the Member State concerned, a reference to the operator as declarant referred to in Article 5(15) of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 or as the importer.
  • customs data showing release for export from the Union and containing, as required by the Member State concerned, a reference to the operator as declarant referred to in Article 5(15) of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 or as exporter referred to in Article 1(19) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446.
  • a used import/export licence duly endorsed by customs authorities containing a reference to the operator as a licence holder.


Proof of trade is not required for quotas subject to the requirement of reference quantity, unless that requirement is suspended.

ISAMM LORI registration requirement

To ensure transparency and to enable the competent authorities to detect violations of the rules for the administration of tariff quotas, and in particular of the eligibility requirements, in certain over-demanded tariff quotas the licence holders’ names, EORI numbers and addresses are published on the official website of the Commission. These over-demanded quotas carry the requirements of ISAMM LORI registration. ISAMM LORI registration is mandatory for all companies that plan to apply for tariff quota numbers 09.4067, 09.4068, 09.4069, 09.4211, 09.4212, 09.4213, 09.4214, 09.4215,09.4216, 09.4251, 09.4254, 09.4255, 09.4260, 09.4263, 09.4273, 09.4410, 09.4411, 09.4412, 09.4420, 09.4422 for the poultrymeat sector and for tariff quota number 09.4285 for garlic originating from China for the tariff quota period starting 1 January 2021. Applications for LORI registration must be submitted no later than two months before the month during which the operator intends to submit its licence application. ISAMM LORI registration always carries a requirement for a reference quantity and a declaration of independence. Instructions for LORI registration are available at www.ruokavirasto.fi/agrim: click on “LORI registration” under the heading, “Additional information”, on the right-hand side.

Reference quantity requirement

There are import tariff quotas that do not require ISAMM LORI registration but that are sensitive quotas because they are over-demanded or apply to a specific product or country of origin that is of special importance to the sound functioning of the Union’s markets or because regulations applying to the administration of the quotas have previously been circumvented or applied incorrectly. To ensure the appropriate administration of such import tariff quotas, the maximum quantities that can be applied for must be confirmed in the form of a reference quantity. Reference quantities apply to individual operators, and they specify a maximum quantity (15%) in order to ensure that it is possible for new importers and small and medium-sized operators to enter the market. Applicants must provide the Finnish Food Authority with evidence pertaining to the reference quantity along with their first import licence application.

In quotas subject to a reference quantity requirement, the regulations repealed in Commission Regulations (EU) 2020/760 and 2020/761 shall apply to the confirmation of the reference quantity during the first two tariff quota periods after the entry into force of Commission Regulations (EU) 2020/760 and 2020/761. The Commission has specified that the repealed regulations shall only apply to the documents related to proof of reference quantity in the quotas concerned and not to the method for calculating reference quantities. During the first two tariff quota periods, the fulfilment of the reference quantity requirement may be proven by providing customs documents concerning the release for free circulation, duly approved by the customs authorities and including a reference to the applicant referenced as the consignee, or a customs document concerning export, duly approved by the customs authorities.

The Commission may suspend the reference quantity requirement if, at the end of the ninth month (note that this does not always mean calendar months) of the tariff quota period at the latest, the quantities applied for throughout the EU under the tariff quota are lower than the quantity available for that tariff quota period. The Commission will announce the suspension of the reference quantity by issuing an implementing regulation. The duration of the suspension shall not exceed the tariff quota period.

Issue of a quota import licence and return of a quota import licence to the Finnish Food Authority

With regard to quotas that have specific application periods defined in regulations, the Finnish Food Authority reports to the Commission on the quantities applied for in Finland after the deadline for submissions. During the period specified in the regulations, the Commission shall decide which applications from all of the Member States shall be approved. If the quantities applied for exceed the quantities available in certain quotas, the Commission will announce the allocation coefficient to be applied to all applications submitted for the quota concerned. If the sum total of the applications submitted for a quota is equal to or less than the quantity available in the quota, the applicants will be granted licences in the amounts for which they applied. The allocation coefficients determined by the Commission for each quota are published on the same European Commission website as the quantities that can be applied for.  The Finnish Food Authority grants AGRIM quota import licences after the allocation coefficient is published. If the granted quantity is less than the quantity applied for, the Finnish Food Authority will release a corresponding sum of security. Preferential treatment only applies up to the number of kilograms stated on the AGRIM quota import licence. For quotas without specific application periods, AGRIM quota import licences are issued without delay if the applicant provides the Finnish Food Authority with certificates of origin issued by the authorities in the exporting country along with the AGRIM quota import licence application. For some quotas, the licence-granting procedure also depends on the Finnish Food Authority receiving a weekly Communication from the European Commission concerning certificates of origin. In order for the products stated on the quota import licence to be released for free circulation, it may be necessary to present Finnish Customs with a certificate of origin or authenticity certificate in addition to the AGRIM import licence.

The used AGRIM quota import licence must be returned to the Finnish Food Authority within 60 calendar days of the expiry of the licence. Returning the import licence with Customs endorsements to the Finnish Food Authority within 60 days is taken as proof that the obligation derived from the import licence has been fulfilled. The security will be released if the import obligation has been fulfilled and the used licence has been returned within the specified time period. The obligation to release products for free circulation is considered completely fulfilled when the entire quantity of products specified in the AGRIM quota import licence has cleared customs through the appropriate procedure during the period of validity of the licence and the products have actually been released for free circulation. The quantity released for free circulation under an AGRIM quota import licence may deviate by no more than -5% from the quantity permitted by the licence. When the Finnish Food Authority has processed a returned import licence for which 95% of the quantity has been used, the entire security will be released. If less than 95% of the licensed quantity has been used, security will be released in proportion to the realised imports. The customer forfeits the proportion of the security corresponding to the unrealised quantity. If the AGRIM quota import licence is returned late, the security may be withheld even if the import obligation is fulfilled.

An AGRIM quota import licence issued by the Finnish Food Authority must be returned after the appropriate endorsements have been entered on it by Finnish Customs. Electronic licences must be returned through the Electronic import and export licence service, and paper licences must be mailed to the Finnish Food Authority. The licence must always be returned, even if it has not been used during its period of validity.

The periods of validity of quota import licences vary depending on the product sector. The periods of validity are shown in this guide and the Commission regulations.

The quota period for beef and veal (the quota year) may begin on 1 January and end on 31 December or begin on 1 July and end on 30 June the following year. Certain quota periods in the beef and veal sector may be divided into 2, 4 or 12 sub-periods. A predetermined quantity of the total quota quantity is available for allocation in each sub-period.
