What is the purpose of the customs tariff number?

The customs tariff number is required to determine the import and export regulations for the goods in question. First and foremost, this number can be used to determine the import and, if applicable, existing export duties. However, the possible existence of an import or export ban or reservation can also be clarified on the basis of this number.

At the same time, the correct determination of the customs tariff number is also absolutely necessary for Intrastat declarations, for the determination of the excise duty rate or also within the framework of the goods origin and preference law.

The customs tariff numbers (commodity codes) or "The Harmonized System of Tariffs and Trade Codes" (the Harmonized System), as it is officially called, are valid in all member states of the World Trade Organization (WTO).
