H.S. Classification Bootcamp

Posted January 29, 2014

The world's significant trading partners use the Harmonized System (HS) duty classification which is used to identify and classify all imported and exported goods into and out of a country for the purpose of determining duty rates, statistical data, and product classification.

Classification is the foundation for all importation, including all Trade Agreements.  Ensure that you are compliant with customs regulations and are paying the proper duty on your products.

Learn how to classify imported goods to the 10 digit level in the Canadian Customs Tariff and US Tariff using legal notes, Chapter notes, Explanatory notes, and General Interpretive Rules.

Each session of this 2 day bootcamp will advance through the process of classifying products beginning with the necessary rules.  You will learn how important it is to know the product you are importing, understand basic grammar, and focus on interpreting certain terms throughout the Customs Tariff.

The training in the bootcamp will include special tariff items providing duty free concessions.  This bootcamp will provide hands-on-training with modules designed to allow you to test your knowledge each step of the way.
