Irish scheme cuts costs of non-EU raw materials

Irish Government announces new round of Tariff Suspension/ Quota Schemes.

The Irish Government has revealed a new round of the tariff suspension/quota schemes and is calling for applications from manufacturers in the industrial, agricultural, and related sectors.

The tariff suspension scheme offers the possibility for such companies to import raw materials, components or intermediate products from outside the European Union free from tariff duty, if the item cannot be sourced in the EU/Turkey.

“The scheme represents an opportunity for Irish manufacturers to reduce the costs of sourcing materials that are not available in the EU”

The tariff quota scheme is designed to address shortages in the availability of essential materials within the EU and can be applied for in the same way as suspensions.

How to apply

Closing date and time for the receipt of the next round of applications is 5.30pm on Monday, 31 January 2022.

Applications should be sent by email to tariffschemes@enterprise.gov.ie and posted to the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment on Kildare Street, Dublin 2.

“The scheme represents an opportunity for Irish manufacturers to reduce the costs of sourcing materials that are not available in the EU,” said Minister for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation Robert Troy, TD.

“I encourage Irish companies to avail of the tariff suspensions and quotas scheme.”
