Customs and Import Arrangements

Import Restrictions

ome goods may only be marketed in Germany if they comply with certain conditions regarding ingredients, materials or technical specifications. The TARIC database shows whether any limitations or restrictions exist. Actual import bans only apply to a miniscule number of goods.

Different authorities are responsible for the granting of approvals or licences, depending on the nature of the goods. Please refer to the responsible institution websites, for instance:
