ETQG 2019 2020 Suspensions round 1 January 2020 list of items

The EU duty suspension regime exists to help EU manufacturers import components duty-free, provided they are not manufactured in the EU. This is to help UK/EU manufacturing better compete with finished products from cheap sources overseas. These duty suspension requests are made in twice-yearly “rounds” by the EU.

For this new round, there are three requests for aluminium products where the EU manufacturer has been unable to find an EU manufacturer of the component product and wishes to import it duty-free. The UK, like all other member states has been asked to confirm whether the products are available from EU manufacturers.

The three products are:

0401 7604 21 00 1720548/2019 Hollow profiles of aluminium alloys with a thickness of 0,5 mm or more, but not more than 0,7 mm and finish anodized of 10MY, for use in the manufacture of board frames of whiteboards, cork boards, easel boards, education boards and display cases (1) New PT
