WCO country HS code tracker 

Stay up to date with the HS nomenclature version each WCO country uses.

In 2022, the World Customs Organization (WCO) made 351 amendments to the Harmonized System (HS) Nomenclature, which changes many HS codes. Each country in the WCO that uses the HS will need to implement the updated HS codes and publish its new country-specific codes throughout the year. Keep track of this implementation status for the countries you ship to with this guide so that you can stay compliant.

Below is a list of the 183 countries that belong to the World Customs Organization and which nomenclature edition each country uses.

FAQ

What happens if I use an outdated HS code?

Using an outdated HS code or country-specific code is considered an incorrect code and can result in the following consequences:

  • Your shipment may be held at the border by customs.
  • Customs will assign an HS code to the goods themselves, which may result in a higher-than-accurate duty rate.
  • Your shipment may be rejected.
  • You may incur penalties and fines.
