Online Customs Tariff

All import and export commercial transactions require commodities or products on Customs Declarations to be classified according to an appropriate Customs Tariff Code. The tariff code is directly linked to the rate of duty payable on that commodity. Classification operates as part of the international Harmonised Commodity and Coding System, under the WCO Harmonised System Convention. For the classification of the goods into a Customs Tariff, there are six (6) fundamental rules, the General Rules of Interpretation (GRI). You can read further information on the GRI here.
