Agricultural Products

Imports of some agricultural products must be accompanied by an import licence. These licences allow the EU authorities to monitor trade flows and administer tariff quotas and safeguard measures.

To obtain a licence, importers must apply to the competent authorities of the EU country of import and pay a deposit. This deposit can then be returned once the authorities are given proof of import.
