The delay will affect various products covered by the free trade agreement, but most particularly processed agricultural products in category B of annex III. The same applies for products in category B in the agricultural agreement concluded between Switzerland and the GCC states in parallel with the free trade agreement.
Swiss companies exporting the products under category B must enclose the movement certificate EUR 1 in order to benefit from a preference in the GCC states. After the confirmation of the tariff dismantling by Saudi Arabia, the duty-free import of category B products should now be possible to all GCC states except the United Arab Emirates.
