Quotas ignored - questions asked

30 September 2001

On the 25th July 2001 the Commission announced it was taking action against French banana importers who had imported above and beyond their tariff quota (50,000 tonnes in place of 4,000 tonnes).  The Commission is concerned that the new rules for the management of tariff rate quota's in the banana sector should be properly adhered to, in order to avoid further challenges to the new regime.

Editorial comment

Widespread abuse of the management of tariff quota arrangements could lead to new challenges to the revised banana regime. ACP banana suppliers should note this warning.
