EEC zeroed import duty on wallpaper polymers for one year

The Eurasian Economic Commission's Council adopted a decision on temporary zeroing the import customs duty on plasticized polyvinyl chloride for wallpaper production until February 29, 2024 inclusive. The current EAEU СCT rate for this product is 6.5%.

"The polymer is used for rotary screen printing on paper and non-woven fabric and at the moment it is not produced in the required volumes in the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union," explained Vahagn Ghazaryan, Director of the EEC Department for Customs Tariff and Non-Tariff Regulation.

According to him, in the context of outside sanctions against a number of countries within the Union, the adopted customs and tariff regulation measure will allow to support wallpaper producers in the domestic market.

The decision shall come into effect after 10 calendar days have elapsed from the date of its official publication.
