Changes to Japan Quotas under the Trans-Pacific Partnership

​​The below tables outlines in which calendar year the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP-11) provides a more favourable tariff-rate than the Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) for specific products.

As the tariff rates for pork vary depending on the product’s value, the better tariff rate could vary on a case by case basis. For this reason the department will continue to issue JAEPA certificates for pork if they are requested.
