The abolition of industrial tariffs will enter into force on 1 January 2024. This decision was made by the Federal Council in its meeting on 2 February 2022, after the necessary amendment to the Customs Tariffs Act was passed by Parliament on 1 October 2021.
In Switzerland, industrial products are all goods with the exception of agricultural products (incl. animal feed) and fishery products. The abolition of industrial tariffs thus covers all goods in Chapters 25-97 of the Customs Tariff with the exception of some products in Chapters 35 and 38, which are classified as agricultural products.
