The Commission’s proposal follows the methodology agreed jointly with the UK. The EU share of the apportioned quota was computed by subtracting the UK share of a given quota from the entire scheduled tariff rate quota in question. The UK share of that given quota was computed by determining the UK’s usage share (expressed in percentage) and applying it to the scheduled TRQ volume. The UK usage share was obtained by calculating the UK share of imports under a certain quota over a recent representative period of three years (in this case 2013-2015). The Commission proposal contains an annex giving the detailed list of TRQs and the respective EU apportionment. Figure 7 shows the TRQ count, depending on the EU-27 share of in quota usage. Only 56 over 194 have an EU-27 share of in quota usage of 100 %; 69.07 % of the TRQ reported in the annex have an EU-27 share of in quota usage over 71 %.
