NIMEXE 
Nomenclature of Goods for the External Trade Statistics of the Community and Statistics of Trade between Member States

This classification is no longer in use; it has been replaced by the Combined Nomenclature in 1988 (see this entry)  

 

DESCRIPTION

1. For directing and managing their economic and trade policies, countries need statistics giving information on imports and exports in a sufficiently detailed form. Also, statistics must be available to cater for the professional interests of businessmen in industry and trade who need to gain insight into their markets.

After the establishment of the European Communities, the same needs were felt at Community level. So, to provide Community, government and business circles with an instrument to serve as a common basis for comparable statistics on intra- and extra- EEC trade, NIMEXE was devised and has been applied since 1966.

Under the Council Regulation (EEC) of 24 April 1972, the application and organization of NIMEXE is the subject of Community legislation. NIMEXE is revised annually by a special Committee and the revised version is published in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

2. It should be noted that in all the Member States of the EC - and in many other countries too - statistics on external trade are produced in close collaboration between the customs services and statistical offices. All the Member States of the Communities are also members of the Customs Cooperation Council (CCC) and are obliged to incorporate the conventions of that intergovernmental organization in their own customs legislation and practice, including the CCC's nomenclature. The latter is commonly referred to as the "Brussels Nomenclature" but its official name is now, since 1976, the "Customs Cooperation Council Nomenclature" (CCCN). As a result, Community legislation on customs matters is constructed within the CCC system, and the "Nomenclature of the Common External Tariff of the European Communities" (CCT) is embodied in the CCCN, and is in fact a subdivision of it.

3. Because of the interdependence of customs work and statistical work, NIMEXE was developed in the context of customs nomenclatures and their methods of application - for instance, the 6-digit coding of NIMEXE is based on the CCCN (the first four digits of the codes are the same) and in most cases it follows the tariff subdivisions of the CCCN which are contained in the CCT.

4. Lastly, NIMEXE provides a direct correlation (via the CCCN) with the Standard International Trade Classification (SITC-first revision, 1971) produced by the United Nations; cross-references to the new revised version of the SITC will be available in 1978.

Below you will find only the English, French and German versions of the NIMEXE classification. To obtain further linguistic versions follow this link.
