Abstract: This study sheds light on particular issues of poultry imports to the EU during the 1996-2014 period. First, we analyze the mechanisms of EU market protection through the evolution of tariffs and non-tariff measures (NTMs), both descriptively and econometrically. Second, we estimate bilateral ad valorem equivalents (AVEs) of different types of NTMs imposed on the imports of poultry to the EU. These AVEs hint towards the diverse impact of NTMs on various exporters based on their production compatibilities with EU standards. Third, we analyze the quality impact of NTMs, which are also differentiated by the exporting countries.
