Methodological note

Idescat draws up these statistics using the most relevant information derived from data for exports to third countries, based on the Single Administrative Document (SAD), and dispatches to Community countries based on the Intrastat declaration.

The coming into force in 1993 of the Single European Market led to the elimination of border controls on trading between Community member states and, as a result, major changes in the documents, formalities and controls for exports and imports. Intrastat is a permanent and direct system for gathering data from companies in order to draw up, through consignors and consignees, statistics about the trading of goods between member states by means of a statistical declaration. Intrastat replaces the Single Administrative Document (SAD) for this trading.
