This screen enables you to put in a request for a goods code to be used to fill up your Intrastat declaration or for an existing code to be checked. If you are looking for a commodity code for import or export goods (extra-Community trade), we would advise you to contact the competent customs office. The commodity codes attributed by the NBB for use in Intrastat declarations are not in any way binding for the customs services, who may decide that, for technical reasons, other goods codes are better suited for customs declarations.
