On the European Commission's Market Access Database (Access2Markets) you can find detailed data on imports into many countries outside the EU. This website provides information not only on import duties but also on specific requirements (which documents do I need to present at customs clearance?) for imports into a whole range of countries outside the European Union. It is one of the most interesting starting points for the European exporter and/or importer.

Select the country concerned, enter the first 4 (or 6) digits of the customs tariff or a goods’ description in English, click the search function and then information on all tariffs, import procedures and formalities and product-specific requirements for more than 120 export markets outside the EU will appear.    

Information is also available on trade in services, investment and procurement in third countries, and you can learn to make better use of EU trade agreements.

The BFTAs legal helpdesk is available for support in using Access2markets.
