Agricultural products - Preferential trade

Most trade in agricultural products is not included in the EEA Agreement. However, the parties of the EEA Agreement have undertaken to make efforts with a view to achieving progressive liberalisation of agricultural trade. In addition, the EEA Agreement determines preferential trade arrangements for certain processed agricultural products.

Trade in agriculture is covered by Article 19 of the EEA AgreementProtocol 3 to the Agreement regulates preferential trade in processed agricultural products.

The Working Group on Processed Agricultural Products normally meets once a year to review the trade in processed agricultural products as foreseen in Article 2(2) of Protocol 3 to the EEA Agreement.
