Change in Customs Tariff Codes

6 January 2017 / Industry news

As a yearly reoccurring exercise, the European Commission has updated the Combined Nomenclature (CN) being Annex I to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff, as Regulation (EU) 2016/1821.

The Combined Nomenclature forms the basis for the declaration of goods (a) at importation or exportation or (b) when subject to intra-Union trade statistics. This determines which rate of customs duty applies and how the goods are treated for statistical purposes. Click here to consult the full list.

This change became effective on January 1st 2017. As a consequence, tariff code 3824909699 has become obsolete, and has been replaced by 3824999699, which affects some of our products. Should you have specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact your Arteco Sales Manager.
