Every product entering or leaving the U.S. must have a tariff classification code. It’s a number that identifies the product at a glance. Seems simple, right? It’s part of the Harmonized System with pretty much the whole world in compliance. The problem is that it’s not always easy to determine exactly which one of 9,000+ tariff classification codes applies to a given product. Get it wrong and the border becomes a blockade.

Download the new white paper Proper Tariff Classification – A Vital Part of Customs Compliance to help your business better understand the classification system and its role in ensuring proper compliance.
