Box 31: Packages and description of goods; Marks and numbers - Container No(s) - Number and kind

Enter the marks, numbers, quantity and kind of packages or, in the case of unpackaged goods, enter the number of such goods covered by the declaration, together with the particulars necessary to identify them. The description of the goods means the normal trade description. Except for non-Community goods placed under the customs warehousing procedure in a type A, B, C, E or F warehouse, this description must be expressed in terms sufficiently precise to enable immediate and unambiguous identification and classification. This box must also contain the particulars required by any specific rules (e.g. VAT, excise duties). Using the relevant Community code from Annex 38, enter the kind of the packages.

If containers are used, their identifying marks should also be entered in this box.
