DO you understand what a Commodity Code is? Do you know how to find out what your Commodity Code(s) should be? Commodity Codes dictate your duty rating as well as alerting you to any import or export restrictions.

This half-day training course covers all the key elements of the Commodity Code. The course will highlight commercial implications of the correct use of the Tariff/Commodity code and why it is so important to have a good understanding of them, which will help towards successful and efficient global business.

This course guides people through the process and its paperwork steadily and methodically so that everyone can arrive at an accurate HS code for their product with confidence and peace of mind.
