Report a trade barrier

When exporting to the EU, you may encounter obstacles that make trade more complicated and expensive. They are often referred to as “trade barriers”. Such barriers can take many forms, and the problems may stem from the EU as well as from the exporting country.

Some of the most common barriers to trade are:

  • technical barriers to trade (technical regulations, administrative and other non-compulsory provisions)
  • dumped and subsidised imports
  • quantitative import restrictions (quotas)
  • complicated procedures for the registration of a new business.
