Commodity Coding System for International Trade

The penalties for wrongly assigning a code to a product could be severe and relying on a freight forwarder’s judgment does not release the producer or shipper from responsibility for accurately describing the goods. This course guides people through the process and its paperwork steadily and methodically so that everyone can arrive at an accurate Harmonised System code for their product with confidence and peace of mind. At the end of this ‘hands-on’ course - with many coding exercises - candidates leave with a solid experience of coding a variety of products, including their own range and can approach further Harmonised System coding challenges with complete confidence.
