Importing plastic parts and samples

Importing plastic products and samples from China is far from complicated or expensive.

The CPC (Commodity Code) number describes what the goods will be used for in the EU.
Most samples are duty and Vat free, however goods that are being tested are usually classified as only VAT free.

It is therefore important that we know if your parts will be used for testing or if they are only samples to judge production quality.

Duty VAT
Samples No No
Samples for testing Yes No
Production parts Yes Yes

Importing from outside the EU is subject to a third country duty of 6.50 %.
The CPC code for plastic products is: 3926909790
