are published in October

The OJ of the L-series
contains the CN which
serves for the
classification of all
imported or exported
goods. Customs is able
to identify which duty
applies and measure
quantities for statistical
purposes. The CCT
indicates the normal
third country duty rates
to be applied for all
goods classified under a
given CN code.
The CN+CCT is the legal
instrument.
The CN publication in
October]November is
only applicable as from

Contains, in addition to normal
third country duty rates, all
duty rates applicable under the
preferential agreements for
goods from nearly all over the
world except of the US,
Canada, Australia, New
Zealand and Japan, or
autonomously to developing
countries under the
Generalised System of
Preferences.
The TARIC contains all
agricultural and commercial
trade policy measures from
embargoes, textile restrictions,
licenses to all other measures
considered by the European
Council.
(All preferential rates and all
commercial policy measures
such as quotas, suspensions,
anti-dumping, embargoes.}
The TARIC is the daily working
instrument for all Customs
officers and is the basis of their
automated Customs clearance
systems.
It constitutes an instrument
for practical use and
information,
but does not have a legal
status in itself.
The TARIC serves as a direct
basis for the preparation of
Member States working tariffs
and for the application of
TARIC codes in automated
customs clearance.

The use of the TARIC codes is
obligatory in customs and
statistical declarations in trade
with third countries (Article
5(2} of R 265S]S7}. It has to
be entered in box 33 of the
Single Administrative
Document (SAD}.

The TARIC publication of April
includes the CN]CTT data and
always shows the rates and
measures that are applicable
at the present moment.

The Treaty gives a clear indication in
its Article 9 about the basis of the
European Communities:
it is a Customs Union.
The main characteristic of a Customs
Union is the application of a common
external Customs tariff and the
absence of duties in trade between the
Member States.
Without the establishment of a
Customs Union, there would never
have been any further development
like the Internal Market or even the
Economic and Monetary Union.

While in the beginning, it was
important that the Common Customs
Tariff was applied in the Customs
Union in a uniform way, any further
political integration required a larger
and deeper harmonization of
legislation.
In the end, the Customs
administrations have been entrusted,
in addition to their original tasks, with
the application of the international
trade aspects of the agricultural and
commercial policy of the Community.
Additionally, the Community has
concluded preferential agreements
leading to Customs Unions or Free-
Trade Areas with a large number of
third countries.
To others, preferential treatment is
granted autonomously (GSP, OCT}
