2020 Combined Nomenclature Published


The 2020 Combined Nomenclature is published as European Commission Implementing Regulation No 2019/1776 of 31 October 2019.

The Combined Nomenclature – European commission

The basic regulation is Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff. An updated version of the Annex I to the Combined Nomenclature Regulation is published as a Commission Regulation every year in the L-series of the Official Journal of the European Communities (as well as on CD-ROM). Such updates take into account any changes that have been agreed at international level, either at the World Customs Organisation with regard to the nomenclature at HS level or within the framework of the WTO with regard to conventional rates of duty. Other changes may be required to reflect the evolution of, for example, commercial policy, technology or statistical requirements.
