The Specific Supply Arrangements (SSA) is one of the specific measures designed by the European Union to alleviate the remoteness, insularity and outermost location of the Canary Islands, which consists of establishing a system of aid for the supply of a series of agricultural products, which are essential in the Canary Islands for human consumption, processing and use as agricultural inputs.
- Products that can benefit from the SSA
In the case of the Canary Islands, the agricultural products listed in Annex I to the Founding 0Treaty of the European Union which are essential for human consumption, the production of other products or for their use as agricultural inputs can benefit from the SSA.
- Aid for Insular Transport
Depending on their origin, and within the quantitative limits established by the supply forecast plan 2017 list, products imported/introduced into the Canary Islands may benefit from:
– Exemption from import duties
The amount of this aid shall be determined for each type of product on the basis of the additional costs of transport to the outermost regions and the export prices to third countries and in the case of products intended for processing or for agricultural inputs, on the additional costs arising from the outermost location, and in particular from the insularity and scarcity of land.
