Everything but Arms

Everything but Arms

Everything But Arms (EBA) is an initiative of the European Union under which all imports to the EU from the Least Developed Countries are duty free and quota free, with the exception of armaments. EBA entered into force on 5 March 2001. There are transitional arrangements for bananas, sugar and rice until January 2006, July 2009 and September 2009 respectively.

It should be added the EBA is part of the EU GSP and therefore the legal text can be found in the GSP regulation, art 12 and 13.

The aim of the scheme is to encourage the development of the world's poorest countries.
