2021 European Union Sheepmeat and Goatmeat Tariff Rate Quota Allocation

New Zealand Meat Board’s allocation of European Union (EU) Sheepmeat & Goatmeat Tariff Rate Quota (TRQ) for 2021 is being made to account for two potential scenarios regarding the exit of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU) Customs Union and Single Market. This notice sets out the allocations that will apply should the UK’s exit be delayed beyond the transition period which is set to expire on 31 December 2020. Accordingly, these tariff rate quota allocations will only apply if the transition period of the UK’s exit from the EU is extended, otherwise they will be null and void if the transition period expires on 31 December 2020.

Pursuant to section 31 of the Meat Board Act 2004, notice is hereby given that the New Zealand Meat Board has allocated access to European Union Sheepmeat and Goatmeat Tariff Rate Quota for the 2021 Quota Year, commencing 1 January 2021, as follows:
