Customs information for Switzerland and the European Union

If you would like to retrieve information on tariff and non-tariff trade measures in an EU country, we recommend using the EU customs database TARIC. It provides more precise information on customs tariffs in each of the EU Member States.

For Switzerland, the Swiss Federal Customs Administration provides the Customs Tariff (Tares) free of charge over the internet. It lists Swiss import tariffs, explanations regarding the tariffs and decisions regarding tariff classification.
