Tariff Schedules

The World Trade Center San Diego has the ability to assist in all logistical aspects of importing/exporting, including tariff schedules. You will be able to find the tariff schedules needed for exporting or importing your products.

The HTSA provides the applicable tariff rates and statistical categories for all merchandise imported into the United States and it's based on the international Harmonized System, the global classification system that is used to describe most traded goods.

All import and export codes used by the United States are based on the Harmonized Tariff System (HTS). The HTS assigns 6-digit codes for general categories. Countries which use the HTS are allowed to define commodities at a more detailed level than 6-digits, but all definitions must be within that 6-digit framework.

The U.S. defines products using 10-digit HTS codes. Exports codes (which the U.S. calls Schedule B) are administered by the U.S. Census Bureau. Import codes are administered by the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC).

If you need assistance identifying the right tariff schedule or interpreting the schedule, contact Hugh Constant, Vice President of Trade Services at 619.615.0868 or
