How to find the Combined Nomenclature in other languages than English, French and German


This page describes the procedure to find and obtain the Combined Nomenclature in other languages than English, French and German. In this example we shall look for the Italian version of Combined Nomenclature 1988.

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