“HS Codes” refers to a Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System usually known as “Harmonized System” or “HS” code. These usually are 6 digit numbers or codes that are used to classify trade products developed and maintained by the World Customs Organization. It is usually used to find trade items. All trade items that go across countries are given these codes. This system is used by over 200 countries usually for trade statistics internationally. These codes are also used by customs clearance authorities for identifying the product and to know how much duty needs to be paid on which item. These codes are used for taxes and other regulations as well. All import or export products worldwide are assigned an HS code to determine various things.
To get these codes, the product needs to go through custom clearance. This requires preparation of various documents and filling of various forms. Trading goods is not an easy job.
