Indonesian vegetable quotas

The Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA) entered into force on 5 July 2020. The agreement put in place reduced tariffs for exports of vegetables.

Quotas under the IA-CEPA cover:

  • carrots
  • potatoes

As entry into force occurred part way through the 2020 quota year, the tariff rate quota amounts for 2020 are pro-rata. The agreed pro-rata amounts are:

  • carrots - 2,445.35 tonnes
  • potatoes - 4,890.71 tonnes

For 2021 the amounts are:

  • carrots – 5,000 tonnes
  • potatoes – 10,000 tonnes

Key dates

The quota year runs in line with the calendar year.

  • 1 January—New quota year commences
  • 31 August—Deadline for reclaim and apply for reallocation
  • 18 November—Deadline for annual quota allocation application
  • 31 December—Quota year ends

Current quota usage

The quota usage tables show the total quantity of quota shipped by Australia for IA-CEPA products. The tables are updated regularly.
