HTS Code

What is an HTS Code?

HTS stands for Harmonized Tariff Schedule, a classification system used in the United States to help determine customs duties to be paid on imports.


HTS codes are 10-digits (the first six digits are the same as the HS code for the goods).


The HTS is published by the US International Trade Commission (ITC). HTS codes allow you to estimate duties you will be expected to pay on your shipment when it enters the US.
