Council Regulation (EC) No 1186/2009 of 16 November 2009 setting up a Community system of reliefs from customs duty

All 15 member countries of the European Union (EU) are governed by EU law. So the same EU regulations apply when importing or exporting humanitarian aid into member states. EU regulation No 918/2009 sets out those cases in which, owing to special circumstances, relief from import of export duties shall be granted when goods are imported or exported in the EU. Articles 65-85 are relevant to the importation/exportation of goods for humanitarian aid within EEC countries. The regulation is a revision of the regulation from 1983.
