The Council of the World Customs Organization decided on the 28th June 2014 to accept changes to HS nomenclature according to Art. 16 HS, which comes into force on the 1st January 2017 and replaces HS 2012. A total of 233 changes were made, possibly requiring a reclassification in SAP GTS.
Due to revision of the Harmonized System, all nomenclatures based on this system are affected, for example:
Commodity code – combined nomenclature
TARIC – Integrated Tariff of the European Union
Code number – Electronic customs tariff
TARES – Swiss customs tariff
Schedule B - Statistical Classification of Domestic and Foreign Commodities Exported from the US
This makes reclassification necessary by 1st January 2017.
