Customs database to identify chemicals, classify them correctly in the combined nomenclature and name them in all EU languages for regulation purposes.
This database allows tracking the overall EU usage of "First come first served" import quotas in force granted to products originating from certain third countries.
It displays the balances of each tariff quota applicable in the present year and in the past year. It also indicates the date when a particular tariff quota is exhausted.
'Autonomous suspensions' provide for a total or partial waiver of the normal duties applicable to imported goods during a certain period and for an unlimited quantity. The same applies basically for 'autonomous quotas', apart from their quantities, which are in fact limited.
The database offers information on suspensions both in force and in preparation as well as on quotas in preparation (for further details related to quotas in force please refer to "quota balances" / see above).
