5 Department for International Trade, Continuing the United Kingdom`s trade relationship with the Republic of Colombia, the Republic of Ecuador and the Republic of Peru, (June 2019) Para 80: assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/808947/UK-Andean_countries_trade_agreement_parliamentary_report.pdf [called 20 June 2019] The original quotas of the agreement have been specifically adapted to the United Kingdom. Please refer to Tables 16 and 17 of the parliamentary report of the agreement, which list the new original quotas. 5.While the tariffs in the UK Agreement remain the same as in the previous EU Agreement, tariff rate quotas (TRQ) have been set at the tariff quota level (TRQ) to take account of trade flows between the UK and the Andean countries. The UK government has supported mixed tariff, trade and use data. In order to maintain market access, both parties agreed to provide minimal access by applying TRQs to a proxy ratio in which data showed that historical trade was very low or non-existent. This business continuity agreement was concluded in preparation for the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU. The agreement will allow the company to act as freely as before, without additional barriers or tariffs. 8 Commission of the European Union, Review of International Agreements: Experiences (42nd Report, Session 2017-19, HL Paper 387) Article 68 (a) Crown Dependencies (Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey): Overall, the provisions and customs duties applicable to trade in goods 4.The Agreement introduces expanded cumulation of origin, like other trade agreements previously examined by the Committee. This allows both sides to recognise EU products as coming from the UK or an undersigned Andean country when exporting. The transformation of the European Union can also be recognised, under certain conditions, for British exports to the signatory Andean countries and vice versa.4 The Government notes that without these provisions, products from the United Kingdom or the Andean country that use content from the European Union would no longer meet the conditions of origin for preferential treatment by the other party.5 The EU agreement also provides for origin quotas.
These make it possible to export a certain amount of listed product ranges (e.g.B. swimwear) according to softer origin criteria, decreasing the percentage of the original content. The original quotas were maintained in the UK agreement, although they were adapted to size to reflect the smaller size of the UK market compared to the EU28. Following its withdrawal from the European Union, the United Kingdom is considering negotiating trade agreements to replace and supplement the trade agreements in which it participated as a member of the European Union Customs Union. In October 2020 [updated], the UK concluded a new trade agreement (with Japan)[a], agreed to continue 20 existing agreements (EU), and further negotiations are ongoing. The British government describes itself as a supporter of free trade.   The Agreement on the Continuity of Trade between the United Kingdom and the Andeus States reproduces as far as possible the existing trade agreements.
