Learn about tariff codes and how to view them in the SKU details page
SKUs use tariff codes to simplify identifying and categorizing products in a customer catalog. Tariff codes are numbers in an internationally recognized numerical system created by the World Customs Organization (WCO). This term is sometimes used interchangeably with Harmonized System (HS) codes. Digital River uses tariff codes to make identifying and categorizing traded products easier. The codes are the basis of a worldwide import and export classification system.
The codes exist for every item involved in global commerce. While it may not be necessary for all international shipments, a tariff code is required on official shipping documents for tax assessment purposes.
