The Commission proposal introduced an "emergency brake" for the most sensitive products – poultry, eggs and sugar – allowing tariffs if imports exceed the average levels in 2022 and 2023.

In June 2022, the EU lifted tariffs and other restrictions for 12 months on goods from Ukraine.

Last year, the EU agreed to extend the policy for another year. The suspension of all duties has led to complaints from farming groups in the EU. Cheap Ukrainian grain has flooded the market, making it difficult for farmers in some countries to compete.
