Changes to the commodity classification

Under Changes to the Commodity Classification (only in the German language) is a overview of changed commodity codes.  

Codes of Länder

See Current version of the Country Nomenclature (only in the German language) for the External Trade Statistics.

 

Combined Nomenclature

The Combined Nomenclature (CN) is a harmonised eight-digit commodity nomenclature for foreign trade in the framework of the common trade policy and, in particular, the Common Customs Tariff, and for the statistics of Eurostat and the national statistical offices.

It was introduced by Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff.

 

Commodity code

Enter the eight-digit code of the version of the Commodity Classification for Foreign Trade Statistics in force at the time, seeInformation about the Commodity Classification (only in the German language).

 

Commodity codes - Online search of commodity codes

To look for the correct commodity code by using the Online search of commodity codes

Commodity code (customs tariff code) on the invoice

Currently, a supplier is not legally obliged to provide his or her EU customer with information about the commodity code (for example on the invoice or the delivery note) in the context of intra-Community trade statistics.

Any party responsible for providing information must identify the appropriate commodity code on his or her own responsibility.

 

Contacts

Corrections

All information on Corrections, see Chapter 5 "Correction of intra-Community trade statistics".

 

Country Nomenclature

See Current version of the Country Nomenclature (only in the German language) for the External Trade Statistics.

 

Country of origin

Enter the country where the goods were entirely obtained or produced. If two or more countries were engaged in producing the goods, the country of origin is the last country where the goods were substantially processed in economically justified terms, provided processing took place in a business equipped for that purpose and resulted in a new product or represented a major stage of production.

If the country of origin is not precisely known, the probable country of origin should be indicated. If the origin is not known at all, the Member State of consignment must instead be declared (again). Goods of German origin (eg, re-imports) may be indicated "DE".

 

The indication of the country of origin is mandatory from the reference month of January 2022.

 

See Current version of the Country Nomenclature (only in the German language) for the External Trade Statistics.

Credits

Subsequent discounts, etc., which are not linked to any movement of goods are not to be considered. However, credits granted in relation to goods returned will have to be considered.

See Intra-Community trade statistics General Guide Chapter 3.3 "Corrections" and Chapter 9.2 "Goods returned and credits".

 

CSV files

A CSV file is a text file to store or exchange data of a simple structure. The abbreviation CSV stands for Character Separated Values or Comma Separated Values, meaning that the individual values are separated by a specific character like, for instance, a semicolon. Declaration data which are stored in the form of CSV files can be imported into the Form declaration for intra-Community trade statistics.
