Box 44 : Additional information/Documents produced/Certificates and authorisations
1. Additional information
A five-digit code is used to encode additional information of a customs nature. This code follows the additional information unless Community law provides for the code to be used in place of the text.
Example: In a simplified export procedure, copy 3 must contain the information "simplified export procedure". (Article 280(3). "Simplified exportation - 30100" should therefore be entered in box 44.
Community law provides for certain additional information to be entered in boxes other than box 44. However, such additional information should be coded according to the same rules as the information to be specifically entered in box 44. Furthermore, where Community law fails to specify the box in which information is to be entered, that information is to be entered in box 44.
All types of additional information are listed at the end of this Annex.
Member States may provide for the use of national additional information provided that their codification presents a structure different to the codes for Community additional information.
2. Documents produced, certificates and authorisations
(a) Documents, certificates and Community or international authorisations produced in support of the declaration must be entered in the form of a code composed of 4 alpha-numeric characters, followed either by an identification number or another recognisable reference. The list of documents, certificates and authorisations and their respective codes can be found in the Taric database.
(b) National documents, certificates and authorisations produced in support of the declaration must be entered in the form of a code composed of an numeric character followed by 3 alpha-numeric characters (Ex: 2123, 34d5), possibly followed either by an identification number or another recognisable reference. The four characters represent codes based on that Member State's own nomenclature.
