Combined Nomenclature and Common Customs Tariff

On 29 October, Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2021/1832 amending Annex I to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff was published.

This Regulation, which may be updated daily if needed, establishes the latest version of the Combined Nomenclature (CN) and the Common Customs Tariff applicable from 1 January 2022.

Exceptionally, Corrigendum to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/1832 published on 19 November has completely replaced Annex to this Regulation.

Given the extent of the changes to the HS that will be applicable in 2022, modifications of the Combined Nomenclature are also relevant.
