Mr Herve Schepers Ideas Activities


I am working in the DG Taxation and Customs Union of the European Commission, in the unit responsible of the customs nomenclature and the classification of all traded goods in this nomenclature. I am in charge of the agriculture and chemical products, of the coordination of the European Customs Laboratories and of the European Customs Inventory of Chemical Substances (ECICS).

My core business is to help customs officers and economic operators to classify correctly the goods in the customs nomenclature. In particular, I am a supporter of the IUPAC nomenclatures. I am also particularly interested in the translation of chemical names.
