Combined Nomenclature CN

The Combined Nomenclature is the common nomenclature of the European Union. The 8-digit sub-headings in the nomenclature are used in export declarations and in statistical declarations on internal trade. There are changes to the nomenclature every year and the nomenclature that will come into force in the beginning of the following year is published yearly in the Official Journal of the European Union, by the end of October at the latest. Annual changes will be updated on the website as soon as they are available.
