Non-Canadian Businesses - Customs Tariff

The Canadian Customs Tariff is based on the World Customs Organization's (WCO) Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS).

The Harmonized System (HS)
What is the Harmonized System (HS)? (World Customs Organization)
The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System generally referred to as "Harmonized System" or simply "HS" is a multipurpose international product nomenclature developed by the World Customs Organization (WCO).

It comprises about 5,000 commodity groups; each identified by a six digit code, arranged in a legal and logical structure and is supported by well-defined rules to achieve uniform classification.

The system is used by more than 200 countries and economies as a basis for their Customs tariffs and for the collection of international trade statistics. Over 98 % of the merchandise in international trade is classified in terms of the HS.
