As part of the EU customs union the UK had access to a duty-free quota of 650,000m3 of coniferous plywood which met a very specific product definition. Now the UK has left the EU, the UK has applied its own quota to this product, allowing the first 167,352m3 of coniferous plywood to be imported duty-free for the UK and Northern Ireland, after which 6% duty will be applied. This number represents the average, over 5 years, of UK receipts against the EU quota. The quota should not be used for imports from sources where the UK has a free trade agreement in place such as the EU, Canada, Chile, or South Africa.
The tariff quota number is 050013.
The TTF will be monitoring the coniferous plywood quota and updating members weekly on the balance via newsletters and this page.
