For a number of products, an import monitoring is implemented. This statistical collection of data is ruled by article 308d of Commission Regulation No 2454/93 (Customs Code's Implementing Provisions).
The database for surveillance on the EUROPA web-site displays the volumes of specific products imported into the EU customs territory in the present and in the past year. This information is subject to constant change as a result of the daily operations which take place. The information on the EUROPA web-site is taken on the evening of each working day and is therefore correct at that time. It remains on the web-site until the evening of the following working day.
