1. HS Code results are grouped into 4 digit HS Codes

In previous version FindHS.codes was displaying best matching results as 6 digit HS Codes. Now the results are grouped into 4 digit HS Codes, which means that when you make a query, you will be seeing best matching 4 digit HS Codes. Each 4 digit HS Code is displayed with the description of that heading along with the best matching 6 digit HS Codes under that heading as shown in the sample query result below:

HS Code results are grouped into 4 digit HS Codes

You may click or button on the right corner of 4 digit HS Codes, to expand or to hide 6 digit HS Codes displayed under that heading.

You may click any of the images to see the details of the selected result (see “Details of the selected query result” section below for further information).

Please importantly note that, when you click 6 digit HS Codes displayed in the result screen (for instance 9018.90 or 8513.10 may be clicked) you may see details of the related sub-heading. Details include:

  • Details of the best matching customs tariff information under that sub-heading
  • Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States and Combined Nomenclature of European Union details for selected heading
  • European Union Binding Tariffs for related with selected 6 digit HS Code, along with related classifications issued by other authorities (like US Customs Ruling, HM Revenue and Customs of UK, Canada Advance Ruling System, Turkish Binding Tariff System)

2. Customs Tariff Schedule Taxonomy

By clicking the button you can see Customs Tariff Schedule Taxonomy for the selected sub-heading as shown below. You can easily understand the content (or exact meaning) of the selected HTC code by following the descriptions written in red.

3. Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States

In previous version, Combined Nomenclature of European Union (CN Codes) was used in FindHS.codes. Now Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States is also added, so that you can see the both nomenclature at the same screen as shown below.

Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States

Details of Combined Nomenclature of European Union (CN Codes) and Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States can also be found separately in Useful Information for Harmonized Code, HS Code and HTS tariff classification page

4. HS Code Results corresponding to certain keywords found in your search text

When you make a query, FindHS.codes system parses your query text and tries to extract keywords from your query text to feed them into artificial intelligence based search system. If there is any HS Code (assigned by FindHS.codes team) corresponding to those extracted keywords, the system would display those keywords and corresponding HS Codes in upper part of the query result screen. For instance let’s say that you are looking for HS Code of the following:

“Fitted Protective Case for iPhone 5”

When you make this query, FindHS.codes extracts iPhonetm as a keyword, and displays a query result screen similar to the following screen shot:

6. Limit the searching space to a specific HTS Codes Nomenclature Section1

This option was available in previous version of FindHs.Codes as well. However we substantially improved section based search, therefore we strongly advise you to use this option.

By using this option, you limit the searching space to a specific HTS Codes Nomenclature Section. In this case, instead of searching the whole content the system only searches within the selected tariff section. If you know the HS Nomenclature Section of the product you are interested in, this option would bring more precise results. You can use this option by clicking on the “Search by specifying HTS Nomenclature Section” button right next to the Search button as shown in the picture below.

Limit the searching space to a specific HTS Codes Nomenclature Section

When you click aforesaid button, a modal screen showing all 21 Sections of HTS Codes Nomenclature is displayed. On this modal screen you may see HTS Nomenclature chapters covered by a section by clicking on button on the right corner of that section. Then you may initiate searching within that section by clicking on “Search within this Section” button as depicted in the screen shot below.

Limit the searching space to a specific HTS Codes Nomenclature Section

1"The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System" is divided into 21 different sections. Commodity groups defined by each section are wide apart from each other. For instance Section I defines Live animals and animal products, whereas Section XI defines textile articles.
