The Combined Nomenclature 2022 (CN 2022) is the goods classification used within the European Union for the purposes of foreign trade statistics. It is also used by Directorate General "Taxation and Customs Union" of the European Commission for customs duty purposes. The classification is based on the world standard Harmonized System (HS 2022) which it sub-divides where necessary for purposes of external trade, agricultural regulation and customs duties. CN 2022 is made-up of two concept schemes: CN 2022 and HS 2022, which indicates the classification items belonging to the reference classification (HS 2022).
