Serbia: Serbia Prepares Counter Measures to Croatian Non-Trade Barriers

In reaction to Croatia’s non-tariff barrier to imports of fruits and vegetables, Serbia began to step up control and oversight over all products of plant and animal origin originating in, or arriving from, Croatia, with samples taken from every single shipment and extensive inspection of every single sample. On August 10, Croatia’s Agriculture Ministry adopted a rule to eliminate the phytosanitary inspection fee that was imposed over 10 days ago. The new fee will drop from USD 308.50 back to the original USD 14.40, a levy to be charged per fruit and vegetable import shipment from Serbia and other countries.
