Importing and exporting of hemp and CBD in the EU

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the applicable framework for the movement of hemp and CBD within the borders of the EU as well as the import and export to and from “third countries”.

The import and export of hemp in the European Union is regulated by the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) framework, which lays down specific provision for the movement of hemp products across international borders.

Likewise, it is necessary to take into account the Combined Nomenclature (CN), which is “a tool for classifying goods when they are declared to customs in the EU, set up to meet the requirements both of the Common Customs Tariff and of the EU’s external trade statistics”. In practice, it means that each good will have a distinct number, and logically, hemp products have their own – for example, “true hemp” code is 5302 10 00.
