Safeguard duties

If your company is considering exporting, this section helps you find out which import duties and other costs you could face. It does not provide product-specific information. For that, you should use the product search function.

Safeguard measures may be applied when an industry is impacted by an unforeseen, sharp and sudden increase of imports. Such measures are used very rarely and only in very specific circumstances. Safeguard measures can consist of quantitative import restrictions (trade quotas) or of duty increases. They may apply to all imports of the product in question from all trade partners or from goods of specific origin.
