Changes to goods codes used when declaring an additional national code for face masks

As from 3 October 2020, the European Commission will make changes to the TARIC database to make a clearer distinction between the different types of face masks. Since 19 May 2020 an additional national code has been mandatory for importing and exporting face masks. This code must be indicated in box 33, fifth subdivision of the Single Administrative Document.
