Monitoring measures in force

Safeguard duties are collected by customs authorities of EU countries.

The Commission monitors import volumes and prices of all products subject to measures, in order to identify and to react to circumvention and other irregularities. It does so in close cooperation with different bodies, in particular:

  • the customs authorities of EU countries;
  • the Commission tax and customs department, and;
  • the European fraud prevention agency (OLAF).

If you suspect or have evidence of irregularities, or have other questions, please contact us.
