The scope of the AWEG (Austrian Medicinal Products Importation Act) is controlled by way of the customs tariff nomenclature. For goods imported from third countries, this control mechanism relies on the competence of customs authorities, who, upon import of the goods, have to release these good into free circulation within the Community.

A prerequisite for the release of goods is that they have been correctly classified in accordance with the customs tariff nomenclature and that they are accompanied by an import certificate or certificate of marketability issued by BASG (Federal Office for Safety in Health Care).

Questions regarding the classification of goods in accordance with the Community customs tariff should be addressed to the Federal Ministry of Finance (Central Customs Tariff Information Centre, Zentrale Zollauskunftsstelle), who will provide a binding answer. BASG cannot provide any information on the classification of goods in accordance with the Community customs tariff on the grounds of lack of competence. In cases of doubt, please refer to the customs authorities. Do not apply for an import license or certificate of marketability with BASG before all of your tariff questions have been answered.
