Import and export rules


The EU wants to help traders make the most of global trading by making the information clear.

Trading with the wider world brings growth to the EU economy and jobs for European workers.

The European Commission has the data on tariff duties, the technical requirements to trade, food

health requirements, anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties and other issues.

Many of the trade problems which European exporters face are not just the traditional import tariffs or quotas but discriminatory or disproportionate regulations or standards.

Removing these barriers is part of the EU's strategy to boost exports and promote growth and jobs in Europe.
