How to find the NIMEXE classification in other languages than English, French and German


This page describes the procedure to find and obtain the NIMEXE classification in other languages than English, French and German. In this example we shall look for the Italian version of NIMEXE 1977.

However it is important to note that the language availability will depend on the year you are interested in since the NIMEXE classification is available only in the languages of the countries which were members of the European Union in the relevant year.
