3 Tariff browser
3.1 Tariff browsing

The following operation types can be carried out on the screen Browse tariff:

  • Browse nomenclature tree
  • Display duty rates and other measures
  • Display additional information

The way the criteria are entered is described in Display criteria.

3.1.1 Browse nomenclature tree

The goods nomenclature is built as a hierarchically structured tree. After the button Browse nomenclature tree has been pressed, the Tariff Browser displays the Nomenclature tree screen with the section list. From that list, after clicking the section number, it is possible to go to the chapter list (two-digit code), then accordingly to the heading list (four-digit code), the sub-heading list (six-digit code), the combined nomenclature – CN list (eight-digit code), and the TARIC nomenclature list (ten-digit code), which is on the lowest tree level.

To all chapters two links are added: Legal Notes and ExplanatoryNotes. The first link allows user to go to legal notes of the chapter, and the second to explanatory notes of the chapter. This doesn't mean that each chapter has legal and explanatory notes attached. In fact, only certain chapters actually have such attachments. The links indicate however, that Legal Notes and ExplanatoryNotes can be attached to any chapter.

The layouts of the screens on chapter and position levels are related. The only difference is that only notes can be attached to positions.

Sometimes footnotes and BTI links are assigned to codes on given levels. Clicking on the BTI link redirects user to the BTI EU System.

Instead of scrolling the tree step by step, one can go directly to the searched code through entering the code into the Goods nomenclature code field and clicking the button Browse nomenclature tree. The browser displays the searched code in the context of adjacent codes.

From the Tariff tree screen it is possible go directly to the Duty rates screen. This is possible through clicking the nomenclature code on the lowest level, that is, the code which has no hierarchically lower codes. From that code one can go to the measures which are assigned to it.

Note: Entering a criterion in the additional information field when browsing nomenclature tree has no influence on the course of operation.

3.1.2 Display duty rates and other measures

The measures are duty rates, taxes (VAT and excise tax), and non-tariff restrictions which are assigned to nomenclature codes.

The measures are always displayed for a particular nomenclature code. After the code has been entered the Tariff Browser displays all measures assigned to that code, for all the origin/destination countries. If, besides the code, also the origin/destination country criteria have been entered, the result will concern only those measures which are assigned simultaneously to the selected nomenclature code and origin/destination country.

Note: Entering the additional information as criterion has no influence on the course of measure display operation.

After the criterion (criteria) has been entered and the operation initialized, the browser displays the Duty Rates screen, where the information is presented in following order: the goods code with the goods description, measurement unit, restrictions concerning import and/or export of goods (with relevant footnotes, legal acts, and additional codes), and duty rates for particular countries or for a specific country (with relevant footnotes, legal acts, and additional codes as well).

Clicking the footnote code, legal act and additional code button opens the screen with detailed information. On the screen presenting the additional code description text sometimes the link to the footnote text of this code is displayed.

Some rates include a link to so-called agricultural component (Meursing code). After clicking that link (“Composition of goods Meursing code”) the Meursing calculator screen is displayed where, after entering used values, it is possible to calculate an additional duty for certain agricultural commodities.

Sometimes applicability of a measure or the amount of duty rate depends on the certain conditions. In such a case the link Conditions is displayed below the measure. After clicking that link the screen presenting the information regarding conditions is displayed.

If the measure is assigned to the country group, it happens that some countries from that group are excluded from the application of the measure – then beside the country group code the abbreviation excl. is displayed with link(s) to excluded country (countries) id.

Duty rates are displayed in the alphabetical order according to the geographical areas to which they are assigned, but in the beginning measures assigned to all the countries (Erga Omnes) are always displayed.

By clicking the code of the country or country group one will receive the related information on the Geographical areas screen.

There is also displayed a list of links which represent the Nomenclature Groups connected with current nomenclature code or code above in hierarchy. User can click on those links and can see the group description and its start date.

3.1.3 Display additional information

The additional information covers: Legal Notes, Explanatory Notes, Binding Tariff Information, Lists of Goods, Classification Regulations, Explanatory Notes for CN, Classification Rulings of European Commission, Adjudications of European Court of Justice, Pronouncements of Customs Code Committee, Compendium of Classification Opinions and Decisions of Harmonised Code Comittee.

The display of additional information is carried out by displaying all information (within one of the mentioned above areas) which is assigned to the nomenclature code entered as a criterion. When, for example, code 0101 00 00 00 has been entered and additional information area "Legal notes" selected, the browser displays all legal notes assigned to the code 0101 00 00 00. Only the additional information valid for the entered validity date is displayed. If for example user inserted in the nomenclature code field Chapter “5002” and selects Explanatory notes in the additional information and clicks the button “Search additional information” then system displays a link “Uwaga do pozycji 5002 ” and if user clicks on that link system displays the content of explanatory notes of chapter 5002.

Independent from whether one or more information is assigned to the entered code, the found information is displayed in the beginning as a list of identifiers. After clicking the proper identifier the complete additional information is displayed in the Tariff Browser.

When no additional information is assigned to the entered code, the browser displays the message “No search results”.

Display criteria for Browse Tariff
Nomenclature code
This is the code which allows for hierarchical classification of goods. After the code has been entered, the Tariff Browser displays the code within the nomenclature tree or measures assigned to the code or additional information containing the code. If, besides the code, also the origin/destination country has been entered, the browser displays only the measures. The code must have the correct format, that is, it must be the two-, four-, six-, eight- or ten-digit code. It is not necessary to enter the spaces after the fourth, sixth and eight digits.
Country of origin/destination( for measures only)
This is the country from which the taxed commodity is imported or to which it is exported. After the country has been entered, the Tariff Browser displays all the measures assigned to that country.

For each country, the line contains the country code and the country name.

Beside the country, also the goods nomenclature code indicating the commodity must be entered. If no code has been entered, the browser displays no measures.

Additional information
This is the information assigned to nomenclature code. It is only possible to display these assignments on one search area. After the nomenclature code and the selected area have been entered, the Tariff Browser displays additional information containing entered code. When in the selected area there is no nomenclature code entered as a criterion, the browser displays an adequate message. (Maybe is the “No search results” message).

If no code has been entered, the browser displays the message “Goods nomenclature code cannot be empty”.

3.2 Text search

The text search is searching for additional information with nomenclature codes descriptions added, according to text expression. When, for example, the word "saltpeter" has been entered and additional information area "Legal Notes" selected, the Tariff Browser displays all legal notes containing the word "saltpeter". Only the additional information valid for the set reference validity date is searched.

Independent from whether one or more occurrence of the entered expression is found in the selected search area, the found information is displayed in the beginning as a list of identifiers. After clicking the proper identifier the complete additional information with the occurrences of the entered expression highlighted is displayed in the browser.

3.2.1 Textual search tips

On the Text expression screen the searched word or other search pattern (a fragment of a word, sentence, eventually with special signs or operators) should be entered.

To search for a tariff information based upon a fragment of a word, the star wildcard character ( * ) should be used. For example, when searching for "pac*", all information containing "pac_" such as "packs", "packings", packages" etc. is obtained.

Several text expressions can be entered as well. To get the information containing all expressions, the expressions should be connected by AND operator. To get information containing at least one expression, the expressions should be connected by OR operator.

The browser does not distinguish different sizes of letters. The same results will be obtained after entering “Meat”, “MEAT”or “meat”.

The text expression is a word or part of the word. For example: “meat”, “beef meat”, “fresh beef meat”, etc.

If there is need to search in all areas one should select “All” in additional information drop down list. As a result of search there will be presented a list of all available areas with number of matches in each. Every item of this list is a link to search in particular area.

More precise ways of searching are described in the examples below.

3.2.2 Text search examples

When using text search, special operators, which define the range of searched expressions, can be used. The following list presents examples of possible operators to be used. The examples concern nomenclature code descriptions in English. The main purpose of the list is to present the principles of search, so it may happen, that due to modifications of the Master Tariff the real search results will look a bit different.

AND (&)
The AND operator is used to search for texts containing at least one occurrence of each of the searched expressions. The AND operator can be combined with all the other operators.

Example: when searching for "live AND animals", the results are: “LIVE ANIMALS”, "Live bovine animals" and "Other live animals".

OR (|)
The OR operator is used to search for texts containing at least one occurrence of each of the searched expressions. The OR operator can be combined with all the other operators.

Example: when searching for "potatoes OR meat", the results contain word "potatoes" or "meat" or both of them.

Note: when using AND in combination with OR:
The AND operator takes precedence to the OR operator. However, this precedence can be altered by putting parentheses. When searching for "meat OR fruits AND fresh", the results are all expressions containing word "meat" and all containing both words "fruits" and "fresh". When searching for "(meat OR fruits)" AND fresh" the results are all descriptions containing the word "fresh" and at least one of the words "meat" or "fruits".

Wildcard Character (*)
The star wildcard operator indicates that any character or characters can appear in position represented by the wildcard. The * operator can be used in any place within a word.

Example: When searching for “pack*”, the results include "packs", "packings", packer", "packed" etc. next to "packages".

Wildcard Character (?)
The question mark wildcard operator indicates that a single position represented by question mark any character can occur. The ?operator can be used in any place within a word.

Example: when searching for “processe?” the results include "processes" and "processed".

Stem ($) - used in English only
The $ operator expands search to include all expressions having the same stem or root word as the searched for expression. It may only appear at the beginning of a word.

Example: When searching for “$live”, the results include "Liver" and "living" next to "live".

Fuzzy (~) - used in English only
The ~ operator expands search to include all expressions spelling in a way similar to the searched for expression. It may only appear at the end of a word.

Example: When searching for “packs~”, the results include "backs", "parkas", "parks" and "padlocks" next to "packs".

3.2.3 Search criteria for text search
