You may ask for a binding tariff information

If you are uncertain about whether the commodity code you have found is correct, you may ask Norwegian Customs for a binding tariff information (BTI). 

You may describe the item in detail on the application which you send us via Altinn. You can upload any necessary attacments (technical descriptions, drawings, brochures etc.).

If you wish to send us a sample of the good, you can do this by sending it to the customs region where your company is registered. You will receive a confirmation and the address is stated her. Here you also will find a reference number that you can mark the samples with.

You will receive a response in writing. The decision is binding for you and for the Norwegian Customs, generally for six years. Be aware that the binding tariff information is not valid for items that were processed by Customs before the BTI was issued.

Database of previous decisions

When Norwegian Customs issue a BTI, these are also made availible on internet. You can search by item type or commodity code, and this can help you to find the right commodity code for your item.
