Update to Commodity Code Structure to maintain dynamic alignment with the EU.   The following commodity codes have been created as of 3 April 2024: 

  • 3907610010
  • 3907610090

South African Wine Quota Amendments. 

South African wine quotas (order numbers 051892 and 051893) are currently showing the wrong volume criteria – kilograms rather than litres. As both quotas have been used, we plan to close the current quotas and re-open them with the same quota order numbers until the end of 2024 with a revised quota volume in litres. This change will have no effect on declarations already made. The closing date for the above two quotas measured in kilograms will be the 5 April 2024. The above quota order numbers will have a new start date from the 6 April 2024 and run until 31 December 2024 in litres.

India Steel Quota Category 4

The Quarter four steel quota for India category four (quota number 058106) is exhausted. Under the UK Steel safeguarding rules, India will now be added to the residual “all other countries” quota (quota number 058007) so that trade can continue without the safeguard additional duty applying until the residual quota is exhausted. Importers of Indian origin category 4 steel should be able to use quota number 058007 for the remainder of this quota period from 8th April 2024.
