The 13th HS 2022 edition comes into force on 1st January 2022. The Harmonised System is the world’s global standard for classifying goods in international trade, providing the first 6-digits of the commodity codes/ tariff numbers to ensure continuity in world trade.
The World Customs Organisation (WCO) says the HS2022 Nomenclature includes significant changes with 351 sets of amendments (including some complementary amendments): 77 relating to the agricultural sector; 58 to the chemical sector; 31 to the wood sector; 21 to the textile sector; 27 to the base metal sector; 63 to the machinery sector; 22 to the transport sector and an additional 52 that apply to a variety of other sectors, comprising a total of 1,228 headings identified by a 4-digit code, and 5,612 subheadings identified by a 6-digit code..
From 1 January 2022, the UK will introduce its 2022 Integrated Tariff. This will incorporate the World Customs Organisation’s changes to the Harmonised System Nomenclature. This full nomenclature will be published soon but you can now view the correlation of commodity codes, at 8-digit level, from the 2021 Tariff to that of 2022.
The tariff changes are as follows:
- covering Sections 1 to 7 which includes animal and vegetable products, prepared foodstuffs and beverages, mineral products, products of chemical or allied industries and articles of rubber and plastic.
- covering Sections 8 to 14 which includes leather, wood, stone and articles thereof, textiles and textile articles, footwear, ceramic products, glass and glassware and precious or semi-precious stones and jewellery.
