The Community Customs Code (CCC) was a single act covering the scope, definitions, basic provisions and content of Community customs law. It entered into force in 1992 and it lays out the rules, arrangements and procedures applicable to goods traded between the European Community (EC) and non-member countries. It increased transparency by replacing a number of acts of law.

The Community Customs Code has now been replaced by the Union Customs Code (UCC) which was adopted in October 2013 and took full legal effect across all EU Member States from 1st of May 2016.
