When referring to a previous document in the form of an export declaration (code N830 in data element 12 01 000 000 ‘Previous document’), information about net mass is mandatory.

Please omit this information when using a reduced dataset.
In all other cases, net mass is optional.

18 02 000 000 – Supplementary units

Consult Tulltaxan (TARIC) to see if the commodity code is subject to supplementary units. Use this field if the goods should be measured as units, litres, cubic metres etc. In all other cases, this information is optional.

Provide this information as a numerical value. You can enter up to six decimal places.

18 04 000 000 – Gross mass

Enter the gross mass of the goods in kilograms.

The gross mass is the total mass of the goods, including any packaging, but excluding containers and any other transport equipment.

  • When the gross mass exceeds 1 kg and includes a fraction of a kg, it may be rounded as follows:
    • Between 0.001 and 0.499 kg: downwards (to the closest whole kg);
    • Between 0.5 and 0.999 kg: upwards (to the closest whole kg).

  • When the gross mass is less than 1 kg it should be written with up to six decimals, for example 0.123 kg for 123 grams or 0.000654 for a package weighing 654 mg.

Provide the information for each House consignment item, except in cases where the goods are packaged in a manner that makes the determination of the gross mass impossible on the goods item level. In such cases, the gross mass of the entire consignment may be entered at House consignment level.

If no packages were declared at the House consignment level, the gross mass of this House consignment item should be 0. However, at least one House consignment item under each House consignment should have a gross mass exceeding 0.

The gross mass entered at Master consignment level should have the same mass or higher than the sum of all goods at the House consignment level.
