Rule 117

 Subject: Ukraine's discriminatory customs policy towards EU glass producers
 Answer in writing 

The Ukrainian Government is planning to change customs tariffs for imported glass. According to the draft, customs duties are to be differentiated for producers of flat glass based on their country of origin. In accordance with the guidelines, preferential rates for float glass (from 3.5 to 4.5 mm thick) will apply to, amongst others, Russia (5 % duty) and Turkey, whereas a duty rate of around 30 % is stipulated for Poland and Bulgaria. Treating trade partners in a differential manner and burdening Poland with high customs tariffs is discriminatory.

In view of the above, since 85 % of this type of glass comes from Poland, such a course of action will significantly destabilise the market.

What resources will the Commission bring to bear to restrain Ukraine’s protectionist trade policy towards EU producers?
What has been the result of discussions on this matter with Ukraine in connection to the ongoing negotiations on the EU‑Ukraine trade agreement?
