Russia: Russian Proposal to Increase EAEU Import Tariff on Hatching Eggs in 2022

The Russian Ministry of Agriculture announced a proposal to increase the EAEU import tariff on hatching eggs from the current zero percent to 5 percent as of January 1, 2022, and then further to 15 percent as of January 1, 2023. Press reports indicate that Russian EAEU partners do not support the proposal, however, consultations on the issue will continue. If approved, the change will affect U.S. hatching eggs exports to Russia, which restarted in 2020 after a four-year hiatus and are likely to grow in 2021 due to ongoing HPAI outbreaks in Russia’s key suppliers in Europe.
