NCTS is an European wide system, based upon electronic declaration and processing, designed to provide better management and control of Community and Common Transit. It involves all countries comprising the EU Member States and all Common Transit Convention contracting countries. Based on the transit declaration, NCTS also covers the processing of safety and security data at entry and at the exit.
The Combined Nomenclature (CN) is a tool for classifying goods, set up to meet the requirements of the Common Customs Tariff and the EU's external trade statistics. It forms the basis for the declaration of goods; at importation or exportation or when subject to intra-Union trade statistics. This determines which rate of customs duty applies and how the goods are treated for statistical purposes. Other legislation may also refer to the Combined Nomenclature. The CN is thus a vital working tool for business and the Member States' customs administrations. The Combined Nomenclature was established by Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and is updated every year.
Incoterms® is an acronym that stands for "International Commercial Terms". It is a series of three-letter trade terms related to common contractual trading practices that can be used in sales contracts. These clauses define the responsibilities and the obligations of the buyer and the seller.
