TARIC, the integrated Tariff of the European Union, is a multilingual database integrating all measures relating to EU customstariff, commercial and agricultural legislation.

Integrating and coding these measures facilitates their uniform application by all Member States and gives all economic operators a clear view of measures to be taken when importing goods into the EU or exporting goods from the EU.

It also makes it possible to collect EU-wide statistics for the concerned measures.

Daily transmissions of TARIC data via an electronic network guarantee immediate and correct information for the national administrations of the Member States, who use this data mainly to feed their national systems for customs clearance, with the goal of maximising automatic customs clearance.

The legal base of the TARIC isCouncil Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff (Official Journal L 256, 07/09/1987).
