Notes to the table:

Column (i): Species

This column indicates the scientific name of the species. Synonyms are included in parenthesis.

Column (ii): CN codes for live specimens.

This column indicates the Combined Nomenclature (CN) codes for the live specimens. The goods classified under the CN codes in this column shall be subject to official controls under Article 15 of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014.

The CN, established by Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87, is based on the international Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) drawn up by the Customs Cooperation Council, now the World Customs Organization (WCO), adopted by the International Convention, concluded in Brussels on 14 June 1983 and approved on behalf of the European Economic Community by Council Decision 87/369/EEC ( 1 ) (‘the HS Convention’). The CN reproduces the headings and subheadings of the HS to six digits, with only the seventh and eighth figures creating further subheadings which are specific to it.

Where only certain specified products under any four, six or eight digit code are required to be submitted to checks and no specific subdivision under this code exists in the CN, the code is marked ex (for example, ex 0106 49 00 , as CN code 0106 49 00 comprises all other insects and not only the insect species that figure in the table).

Column (iii): CN code for parts that can reproduce

This column indicates, where relevant, the Combined Nomenclature (CN) codes for the parts of the species that can reproduce. See also the note for column (ii). The goods classified under the CN codes in this column shall be subject to official controls under Article 15 of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014.

Column (iv): Categories of associated goods

This column indicates, where relevant, the CN codes of goods with which the invasive alien species are generally associated. The goods classified under the CN codes in this column are not subject to official controls under Article 15 of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014. See also the note for column (ii). In particular, the numbers mentioned in column (iv) refer to the CN codes below:
