Overview of HS Code

Overview of HS Code

 

• What is HS Code ?

The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) is a international product nomenclature developed

      by the World Customs Organization (WCO) in order to facilitate the collection of trade-related statistics and tariffs on

      them. Most FTA contracting countries worldwide have adopted the HS Convention.

 

    - The first six digits of HS codes are common worldwide.

    - From the seventh digit of HS code varies from country to country.

 

• Composition of HS Code (e.g.: 0101.29.1000 - HSK 10 digits)

  ① 01: Chapter

  ② 0101: Heading

  ③ 0102.29: Subheading

  ④ 0102.90.1000: 10-digit Code (Korea uses 10-digit code)

6 digit HS code is commonly used world-wide. Each country uses distinguished number of digits extended to additional

      7th to 10th.
