for Pooviah: As you may know there are many many types of textile fabrics – cotton, wool, man made fibre and natural fibre fabrics (spreading over HS Chapters 51 to 58) with different rates of import duty levied in t he EU (and UK) included. For instance for cotton fabrics classified under HS Chapter 52 the import duty for third country is mostly 8%. Although India is featured as a beneficiary country under the EU generalized preference system there is no reduction of import duty rate offered as this a sensitive textile item. UK Standard VAT is charged at 17.5%.

In general there is no licensing requirement for most import or export trade for the mentioned commodities between the UK and India.

The majority of goods can be imported into the United Kingdom without the need to apply for an import licence. However there are other requirements for health goods imported into the country. Please click here for such details released from UK Food Standard Agency.

 According to TDC Guide to Doing Business in the EU, the CE marking is mandatory and must be affixed before any product subject to it i placed on the market and put into service (save where specific directives require otherwise). Where products are subject to several directives, which all provide for the affixing of the CE marking, the marking indicates that the products are presumed to conform to the provisions all these directives. Please click here for more details about the CE marking in the EU.
