What Regulations Are There on Importing Printers and Ink to Hungary?

  • U.S. companies exporting to the Hungary from outside the European Union are required to present the following items: Commercial invoice; Bill of lading; Shipper’s export declaration (SED) for items requiring an export license or valued above $2,500 (submitted only to U.S. Customs); and Declaration of conformity (issued by importer).
  • Goods brought into the EU customs territory are, from the time of their entry, subject to customs supervision until customs formalities are completed.  Goods are covered by a Summary Declaration, which is filed once the items have been presented to customs officials.
  • Hungary applies the EU customs laws and coherent regulations, as well as common customs tariffs from the United States and other non-EU countries. When products enter the EU, they need to be declared to customs according to their classification in the Combined Nomenclature (CN).
  • Most industrial products imported to Hungary are subject to customs duty varying from zero percent to 15 percent. Duty rates for foodstuffs can be higher, as they are based on the weight of the commodity.  The value for customs purposes is directly based on the value of transaction: product price, transportation, and insurance.
  • The Prior Informed Consent Regulation administers the import and export of certain hazardous chemicals and places obligations on companies who wish to export.
  • Because inks contain hazardous chemicals, it is important to follow Hungary’s import regulations.
