HS/HTS codes

HS/HTS codes, also known as Harmonized System or Harmonized Tariff Schedule codes, are a system of standardized international nomenclature used to classify goods for trade.

These codes consist of six-digit numbers corresponding to thousands of individual items and categories. The HS/HTS codes allow organizations and countries to accurately identify different types of products for import, export, tariff assessment, and other purposes.

For example, HS/HTS code 8421.31 is used to identify centrifugal and other liquid pumps, while HS/HTS code 8536.50 is used to identify electrical connectors and contacts.

The World Customs Organization (WCO) develops and maintains the codes.
