Material code

The Federal Statistical Office provides a material code that is an alphanumerical code which is required to identify the declaration files. See also "Request a material code".

 

Member State of Consignment

Indicate the Member state of the European Union from which the goods were sent to Germany as the Member State of destination. If the Member State of consignment is not known, the Member State of purchase may be entered. The Member State of purchase is the Member State of residence of the party (the seller) with whom the trade contract, not the transport contract, leading to the delivery of the goods in Germany was concluded. The codes to be used are the ISO-Alpha-2 country codes of the Country Nomenclature for the External Trade Statistics.

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

 

Member State of destination

Indicate the Member State where the goods are moved to be used or consumed, treated or processed. If the Member State of destination is not known, the EU Member State known as the last country to which the goods are to be dispatched is considered the Member State of destination. The code to be indicated is the ISO-Alpha-2 country code of the Country Nomenclature for the External Trade Statistics.

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