Car wars: the EU announced additional tariffs on imports of Chinese battery electric vehicles
20-06-2024

China is facing increasing pressure over exports of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) as a number of countries contemplate applying measures to protect domestic markets from what they consider to be unfair and market-distorting subsidisation by the Chinese government. On 12 June 2024, the European Commission pre-disclosed new tariffs as a result of an anti-subsidy investigation launched towards the end of 2023. This follows 100% applied on Chinese BEVs introduced by the US in May 2024 and a 40% tariff on conventional and hybrid vehicle imports from China imposed by Turkey earlier in June.

U.S. Tariffs on Chinese Electric Vehicles and Their Effects
16-06-2024

On 14 May, U.S. President Joe Biden placed a 100% tariff duty rate on imports of Chinese Electric Vehicles (EVs). The reasoning was that the low cost of Chinese EVs needs to be counterbalanced by tariffs so that domestic manufacturers can compete fairly against Chinese imports. Editors’ note: For developments in the EU, see ‘EU law news June 2024’.

Introduction of advance rulings system in Côte d’Ivoire
14-06-2024

In 2023, Côte d’Ivoire introduced a new and modern system of advance customs rulings. This development followed two workshops organised in Côte d’Ivoire in May 2023 with the German Alliance for Trade Facilitation and under the aegis of the EU-WCO Programme for the Harmonized System in Africa funded by the EU. The workshops were part of a wider capacity-building programme to support Côte d’Ivoire in meeting its WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement obligations - in particular, Article 3 of the TFA which requires signatory parties to provide an option to apply advance rulings on origin and classification.

EU Customs Data Model (EUCDM)
31-12-2023

The electronic customs declaration consists of data elements that should be harmonised worldwide so that customs can verify the data flow from the exporting country to the importing country. The World Customs Organisation has developed the WCO data model, which provides a universal language for cross-border data exchange. The EU has adopted this model for its own purposes and for trans-European use.
