What are Intrastat Commodity Codes?

Intrastat Commodity Codes are 8-digit codes used in the EU for reporting trade statistics of goods between member states. These codes are required for customs purposes and are used to gather statistical data on goods traded within the EU.

The Intrastat system requires businesses to report the movement of goods between EU member states. The Intrastat Commodity Codes classify goods for reporting purposes based on the Harmonized System (HS) used for international trade. These codes must be included in customs declarations and are used by authorities to monitor the movement of goods and ensure compliance with trade regulations.
