Importers must know how to classify imported products using the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).
By becoming knowledgeable of the Harmonized System (HS), importers will know how to use the HTSUS properly.
Exporters knowledgeable about the HS will understand how to use The Schedule B (also known as the Statistical Classification of Domestic and Foreign Commodities Exported from the United States) properly.
Knowledge of the HTSUS and Schedule B is necessary:
To determine applicable import tariff rates and whether a product qualifies for a preferential (that is, reduced or free) tariff under a free trade agreement
To permit the accurate filings of import entries with U.S. Customs and Border Protection
For exporters, to file accurate the Electronic Export Information (EEI) filings with the U.S. Government
To accurately complete shipping documents, like import and export invoices
