Control procedures on the importation of fresh garlic: general
Commission Regulation 341/2007 allows for the importation of fresh garlic (0703 2000) at a reduced rate of duty under quota from third countries and imposes additional controls on all other fresh garlic importations.
The quotas are allocated to individual countries detailed in Annex I to the regulation.
Imports under the quotas are exempt from specific duty.
Fresh garlic carries with it a high risk of misdescription of origin and misclassification to dried or frozen garlic to avoid quota restrictions and other controls.
