Answer given by Mr Várhelyi on behalf of the European Commission
The Commission is aware of the situation regarding the travel regime applied to goods moving through Morocco’s border-crossing points with Ceuta and Melilla.
Goods exported from Spain or any other EU Member State are entitled to preferential treatment upon entry into Morocco based on the conditions set out by the EU-Morocco Association Agreement.
The Commission has not been informed by Spain nor by another EU Member State of any infringement by Morocco of the provisions of the Association Agreement, nor has the Commission been informed of any issues concerning the trade of EU goods via the Beni Enzar commercial customs office.
The management of customs offices is the responsibility of national authorities. As part of the cooperation with the Moroccan authorities on customs matters, the Commission monitors that trade is carried out in line with the provisions of the EU-Morocco Association Agreement, and the World Trade Organisation Agreement on Trade Facilitation to which both the EU and Morocco are parties.
