ANNEX

List of composite products exempted from official controls at border control posts (Article 3)

This list sets out composite products, in accordance with the Combined Nomenclature (CN) in use in the Union, that do not need to be submitted for official controls at border control posts.

Notes relating to the table:

Column (1) – CN code
This column indicates the CN code. The CN, established by Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87, is based on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (‘Harmonized System (HS)’) drawn up by the Customs Cooperation Council, now the World Customs Organisation, and approved by Council Decision 87/369/EEC ( 6 ). The CN reproduces the headings and subheadings of the HS to six digits. The seventh and eighth digits identify further CN subheadings.
Where a four-, six- or eight-digit code not marked with ‘ex’ is used, and unless otherwise specified, all composite products prefixed with or covered by these four-, six- or eight-digits are not required to be submitted for official controls at border control posts.
Where only certain specified composite products under any four-, six- or eight-digit code contain animal products and no specific subdivision under this code exists in the CN, the code is marked ‘ex’. For example, with respect to ‘ex 2001 90 65 ’, checks at border control posts are not required for the products outlined in column (2).
Column (2) – Explanations
This column gives details of the composite products covered by the exemption from official controls at border control posts.
