DOUBLE-ZERO AGREEMENT

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
In the double zero agreements, the EU and the CEEC typically agree to offer duty free quotas for a specific quantity of a given agricultural product, while anything above the/ quota is subject to duty. Further, the EU and the CEEC agree not to use any export subsidies for the given agricultural product. Every agreement has been concluded bilaterally between the EU and each CEEC country and that, consequently, the contents vary from one case to another.
