The European Commission adopts the annual update of the CN

In the Official Journal of the European Union L287 of 31 October 2009 is published the Commission Regolation (EC) N° 948/2009 of 30 September 2009, amending Annex I to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff.

The EC Regulation N° 2658/87, adopted since 1° January 1988, establishes the Combined Nomenclature (CN), i.e. the tariff and statistical nomenclature of the Customs Union, based on the 6-digit code of the Harmonized System (HS) of classification of goods administered by the World Customs Organization (WCO), which is expanded to 8 digits.

The Combined Nomenclature is periodically amended by the European Commission, that adopts each year (usually within October) a specific Regulation updating the classification headings of goods contained in the Common Customs Tariff and the relevant duty rates (which are listed in the Annex I of the Regulation N° 2658/87).

The latest update of the CN has been released with the above Regulation,which is applicable starting from 1° January 2010.
