In October 2020, the European Commission launched a new information portal Access2Markets to support European importing and exporting companies by helping them to understand the regulations in force, particularly in customs matters.
You wish to export or import products or services and you want to know the applicable duties or the steps to follow?
You wish to discover new opportunities by consulting the latest trade agreements concluded between countries?
This portal can help you by informing you about duties, taxes, rules and product requirements for all European Union countries and more than 120 other markets around the world.
Facilitate the import-export of goods and services
The European Commission’s portal allows EU exporters and importers to easily find detailed information on :
- Customs duties
- Information on VAT, excise duties and sales taxes
- Rules of origin if a free trade agreement is available
- Documentary requirements for product documentation and markings
- Customs procedures and formalities
- Customs barriers
- Trade flow statistics
- News on the latest regulations
Once provided with the HS code of your product (customs nomenclature), the application summarizes the customs duties, national or local taxes to be paid. The rules of origin and requirements are thus listed product by product.
ROSA self-assessment and trade agreement database
Access2Market also contains a self-assessment tool to help you determine the rule of origin of your product.
The available database provides a step-by-step guide that describes the entire process of importing and exporting goods and services.
Explanations, tutorials, and FAQs are available to simplify the understanding of international trade rules by businesses.
The portal informs you about the trade agreements signed by the EU (nearly 80) and allows you to access the markets of certain third countries under more advantageous conditions.
