CN Information  

As with any classification system, there is always a need for revision to reflect changes and developments etc. The CN changes on an annual basis, as from 1st January. This page provides a link to some guidance on how to go about proposing a change, e.g. for a new or upcoming product of which data could assist in monitoring markets. Also provided are details of other proposals made by, for example, other Member States, European Trade Federations, or from the sectors of European Commission itself. Interested parties are invited to put forward their opinions, 'for', 'against' or just their views on the proposals, which will then contribute to the UK representative’s briefing for the EU Committee at which the proposals are discussed.
