HARMONIZED CUSTOM CODES: ÚNMCRL-WEB exclusively

bulletHarmonized System (HS) classification number:

The Harmonized System (HS) Classification is a 6 digit standardized numerical method of classifying traded products developed and maintained by the World Customs Organization www.wcoomd.org . HS numbers are used by customs authorities around the world to identify products for the application of duties and taxes. Additional digits are added to the HS number by some governments (like U.S.) to further distinguish products in certain categories.

bulletSchedule B number:

In the United States, numbers used to classify exported products are called “Schedule B” numbers. The U.S. Census Bureau administers the Schedule B system; web link: www.census.gov/foreign-trade/schedules/b/

Schedule B numbers, not HS numbers, must be provided on the Shippers’ Export Declaration (SED). The Census Bureau uses SEDs and Schedule B numbers to calculate U.S. export statistics.

bulletDifference between HS and Schedule B numbers:

The HS number is an internationally accepted code. The basic HS code contains 6-digits, known as a subheading. The Schedule B is a 10-digit code built upon the first 6 digits of the HS code. Additionally, the Schedule B code is a U.S.-specific coding system used by the U.S. Government to monitor U.S. exports.

bulletThe need to know your product’s Schedule B and HS numbers:

Exporters need to know their product’s Schedule B and HS numbers for the following reasons:
* To determine applicable import tariff rates and whether a product qualifies for a preferential tariff under a Free Trade Agreement;
* The Schedule B number is needed to complete the Shipper’s Export Declaration, Certificates of Origin and other shipping documents; and
* The HS Number may be needed on shipping documents, such as certificates of origin.

COMMON PROCUREMENT VOCABULARY (CPV): ÚNMCRL-WEB exclusively

bullet

Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV) has been developed by the European Union for public procurement. CPV codes are a standardised vocabulary to describe procurement notices to help procurement-responsibles to classify procurements consistently, and to help service and product suppliers find procurements of interest.
