Definition: Integrated Tariff of the European Communities
Eurostat has results broken down in accordance with TARIC (Integrated Tariff of the European Communities), although these data cannot be accessed by the general public. TARIC has been in existence since 1988. It applies only to imports (that is flows from third countries) and permits the application of Community measures such as quotas or preferences. Each TARIC sub-heading comprises 10 digits and is a sub-division of a CN eight-digit code.
