Details of goods item

In this view, you shall declare the details of a goods item. Enter goods with the same commodity code and goods description under one goods item. If goods with the same commodity codes have several goods descriptions in the customs warehouse records, specify the goods descriptions under different goods items. (If the warehouse records are based on product numbers, you can also declare them in the ‘Description of goods’ field in addition to the common trade name.)
If there are several commodity codes, declare them as separate goods items. The goods item details include the following:

  • previous procedure and additional procedure, if any
  • countries of origin
  • commodity code and description of goods
  • TARIC additional code(s), national additional code(s) and other restriction-related details of the commodity code
  • statistical value
  • quantities, i.e. gross mass and possible supplementary unit
  • packages
  • previous documents
  • additional information codes e.g. for previous procedures
  • additional documents, if any
  • container details, if any

Commodity and basic information

Requested procedure

When you have chosen a customs warehousing declaration, the requested procedure is always 71.

Previous procedure

Choose the appropriate code for the customs procedure preceding the declaration from the drop-down menu. If there is no previous procedure for customs warehousing (e.g. the goods are in temporary storage), choose the code ‘00’. If the previous customs procedure is transit, indicate the function preceding transit as the previous procedure. However, the reference number of the transit declaration is indicated as previous document.



Country of origin

Enter the country code of the country of origin of the goods according to the general rules of origin. The country of origin and the commodity code affect the declaring of restrictions.

Country of preferential origin

In customs warehousing, declaring the country of preferential origin is optional and doesn’t have any significance.

Commodity code

In customs warehousing, the commodity code must be entered at the level of at least six digits. If the commodity code you have chosen is subject to restrictions or national additional codes, they will be shown under the goods description, under ‘TARIC information’. If the goods are subject to restrictions, the restrictions must be declared. If, for example, you are declaring peaked caps of 65050030 and your peaked caps are not seal product, select condition code “Y032” – “Other goods than those seal products mentioned in Regulation (EU) 2015/1850 (OJ L 271)”. If your peaked caps are seal products, select the appropriate certificate. You must take a stand on each restriction the goods are subject to.


Description of goods

Enter the common trade name used to identify goods. You cannot use a general name describing the goods or just the model or product number. The goods description must be a verbal description of the goods.

For example, ‘clothes’ is not sufficient, instead it must be specified what kind of clothes are in question, such as ‘women’s nightdresses of cotton’. The description ‘spare parts’ is not sufficient; it has to be specified what kind of spare parts are in question, e.g. ‘fanbelt’.

Statistical value

Enter the statistical value as it is mentioned in the data you have.

Gross mass

The gross mass is the weight of the goods including packaging, without the means of transport or containers. If the gross mass is below 1 kg, enter the value e.g. in the format ‘0,654’, with no more than 6 decimals. If the weight exceeds 1 kg, you can enter the value rounded off to the closest full kilogram according to the rounding rules.

Supplementary units of measure

If Taric requires a supplementary unit for the commodity code, it will be shown in the system. Enter the quantity under ‘Supplementary units of measure’. If the commodity code doesn’t require a supplementary unit, but you want to declare it, enter it under ‘Additional information’ with the code ‘FISUP’.


Enter the number of individual packages, i.e. the number of packages that cannot be divided without first undoing the packing. If the goods are delivered unpacked, enter the number of items. This information shall not be provided for goods in bulk.

If there are goods from several goods items within the one and same package, enter the value one (1) for at least one of the goods items, and the value zero (0) for the other goods items in the same package.

Enter a free-form description of the marks and numbers on packages. If the packages are not marked, enter ‘no markings’. If the number of packages is zero (0), the marks and numbers shall be the same as on the goods item for which the total number of packages has been entered.

Previous documents

Choose the appropriate previous document code from the drop-down menu. Enter the previous document, usually an entry summary declaration, a summary declaration, or a T1 transit declaration.  If the country of dispatch is Norway and there is no previous procedure, the previous document is not declared. If the previous declaration is an electronic declaration for customs warehousing, i.e. submitted to the UTU system, choose MRN. Declare ZZZ, if the previous declaration was submitted under a fallback procedure, and no MRN was issued to the fallback procedure.


Additional information

Choose the necessary additional information code from the drop-down menu, if you are declaring goods for the customs warehousing procedure

  • when the previous procedure is inward processing or temporary admission.Choose the appropriate code from the menu and enter the number of the customs clearance decision concerning the previous procedure in the ‘Description’ field (code 10300 – IP, 10300 – CPM or 10500 – TA)
  • when you are declaring vehicles of headings 8701–8705. Enter their vehicle identification numbers (VIN) in the ‘Description’ field with an additional information code (code FIXBC).
  • when you are declaring goods for which you want to declare an optional supplementary unit (code FISUP).


Additional documents

Enter here the additional documents for this goods item. There are seldom additional documents in customs warehousing. In practice, they are only needed when the import or possession of the goods requires an authorisation (e.g. weapons, ammunitions and products derived from endangered animals, i.e. products subject to the CITES Convention). If necessary, enter the type and number of the additional document.



Enter the container ID, if the goods arrive in container. Here, ‘container’ refers to a sea container. The ‘igloo’ used in air freight is not a container. You can enter the container ID both at declaration header level and at goods item level. Note that if you enter the container ID at declaration header level, all the container IDs declared at goods item level are erased.
Declare the container details at declaration header level, if all the goods are in the same container and at goods item level, if the declaration covers several containers.


When you have entered the details of the goods item, you can either add another goods item by clicking ‘+Add goods item’ or move to the ‘Summary and submission’ page by clicking ‘Next’.
