Annual data Statistics COMEST

Methodological note

Idescat draws up these statistics using the most relevant information derived from data for imports 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.

The classification of products by economic destination is the result of the drawing up of a classification of foreign trade based on the purpose the goods are used for grouped by their customs tariffs (TARIC). Thus the products are shown divided into three groups: consumer goods, capital goods and intermediate goods.
