Duties on the Internet

MAARSSEN, The Netherlands - All European import duties can be found on the Internet, sorted per country and per nomenclature code (CN) under the TARIC menu, in which 'en' stands for English. However, the site can be consulted in all official EU languages.
After choosing the TARIC menu, you give the CN code of the product that you want to import and its country of origin. When you click "duty rates", you find not only the standard rate but also the tariff preferences in so far as they apply to the country in question. Any anti-dumping levies are also mentioned.

Applied Tariffs Database

In the Market Access Database you can find the import duty rates applied by non-European countries. The method of consulting the site is the same as for the previous website. Choose "Applied Tariffs Database" from the main menu and select the country and CN code. The submenu "Preferences, General Notes & Additional Duties" contains full details on the duties themselves and on any additional taxes such as VAT, commodity tax, and so on.
A new feature on this website is the Complaint Register. It allows EU companies or their associations to notify the European Commission of barriers they encounter to trade and investment in non-EU Member State markets.

Developing Countries

In 2004, DG Trade has launched a special website to facilitate access to the EU market for exporters in developing countries, available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
The Export Helpdesk offers a wealth of useful information for those who wish or need to familiarize themselves with all formalities concerning importing into the European Union. Next to import tariffs, customs documents and rules of origin, you can also consult trade statistics. Per CN code imports are shown in value and in numbers for the EU 27, EU 25 or per EU member state. On the export side you can choose between statistics relating to all partners or to one specific country.
The database also offers information on specific requirements and taxes. Upon entering the product code, country of origin and country of destination, you get a list of all administrative requirements for importation and of taxes applicable in the country of destination. The market place is meant to help to get trading partners in and outside the EU in touch with each other. In this section of the website you can either offer or request products in a very simple way.

This year, the Commission has added a "What's New" section, which includes an electric newsletter to which you can subscribe. The Commission intends to include in this new section other announcements of importance to the website¡¯s users. In the next few months information will be published about the reform of the General System of Preferences (GSP), as well as about entry into force of future preferential agreements.
