Commodity code list 

The goods are coded by Eurostat in the Combined Nomenclature (CN). This Combined Nomenclature contains the codes prescribed by the European Union for the statistics on International Trade in Goods in all EU countries. The CN is an 8-digit code. The annual updates result from adaptations needed for Customs and for the statistics. 

The commodity codes are available in PDF and in Excel format:

  • Commodity codes in pdf (PDF - 7.8 MB)
