Q: What is a classification number HS Code?
A: In all free trade agreements, products are identified by a system known as the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System. This is commonly known as the Harmonized System (HS).
The HS consists of around 5000 six-digit product categories. Typically, countries sub-divide these categories further to eight digits or more. This means that the first six digits of an HS code will be common for all countries, however the digits following this may not be the same in all countries even if your product is the same. Ultimately, it is the importing country customs authority that determines if a product is correctly classified and certified at the time it arrives at the border.
