Import of goods (valid until April 30, 2016)

Goods entering the Customs area of the EU from a non-EU country are subject to a number of rules. The main rule is that these goods must be given a 'customs designation'. You can give these goods a customs designation by placing them under a 'customs procedure', for example. There are various customs procedures.

Customs procedures

The following customs regulations are applied:

  • release into free circulation
  • inward processing
  • outward processing
  • temporary import
  • processing under Customs control

Import duties

The import duties and any applicable conditions are given for all goods in Tariff (in Dutch: Douane Tarief Voorziening - DTV).
