In this video, Anthony Buckley provides an overview and shares insights on the tariffs relating to the 'EU law news' published in the course of four weeks:

  • This month’s EU Law Review includes a major speech by Sabine Weyand, Director-General of DG Trade, on challenges facing World supply chains. 
  • It also includes 18 notifications of Tariff  measures, and every month sees some such announcements. What is the connection between Tariffs and World Trade? How does it  work?
  • Since the WTO commenced in 1995, the focus, and the success of the WTO, has been the publication of the standard Most Favoured Nation (MFN) tariffs of each country. These are intended to give full transparency and fairness to World trade, with no discrimination between countries. One might expect, then, to see considerable fluctuations in published MFN rates, as countries regulate their imports for economic reasons. Can we see that?

Please find the slides in the resources section.

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.

Is payment of customs duties suspended if a dispute is brought before a court?
19-05-2024

Did you know that customs duties are one of the European Union's own resources? Therefore, when you challenge customs decisions to calculate customs duties, you are essentially challenging EU revenue. In this overview of a recent judgement by the Court of Justice of the European Union, we answer the question of whether, in the event of a dispute with customs, the collection of import duties (customs duties and VAT) is suspended until the outcome of the proceedings is known.

Technology to Customs: Catch me, if you can
21-04-2024

The WTO's Harmonised System (HS) convention is probably one of the most successful international conventions and aims to harmonise tariff codes for goods worldwide. The WTO also has successful conventions, including the 1996 Information Technology Agreement (ITA), which aims to improve trade in technology products by eliminating customs duties on selected and defined products. The interests of the HS and the ITA are not identical. While the HS aims to establish rules for a unified classification, regardless of whether the result leads to duty-free treatment or not, the ITA's objective is duty-free treatment for technological products.
