Technology to Customs: Catch me, if you can
14-04-2024

The WTO's Harmonised System (HS) convention is probably one of the most successful international conventions and aims to harmonise tariff codes for goods worldwide. The WTO also has successful conventions, including the 1996 Information Technology Agreement (ITA), which aims to improve trade in technology products by eliminating customs duties on selected and defined products. The interests of the HS and the ITA are not identical. While the HS aims to establish rules for a unified classification, regardless of whether the result leads to duty-free treatment or not, the ITA's objective is duty-free treatment for technological products.

The connecting formula in classifying goods under the Harmonized System (HS) Convention
17-03-2024

The language of the Harmonised System (HS) Convention contains many formulas linking goods and their use, such as 'primary', 'principal', 'intended', etc. The HS seems to contain too many of these connection formulae, and the difference between them is not always clear. It is therefore suggested that the World Customs Organisation (WCO) eliminate the undefined terms and look for a method that is as simple as possible. The article below is a short version of the full article, which has been published in the World Customs Journal, 2023, Issue 17(2).

Partnership with private sector leads to enhanced certainty in the classification of products in Brazil
23-02-2024

Brazil is on the cusp of a groundbreaking transformation, with the rollout of an upgraded version 2.0 of its Foreign Trade Single Window, the Portal Único Siscomex. A core innovation within the Portal is the introduction of a catalogue describing products using pre-defined attributes. The new system has been made possible thanks to an exceptional partnership between private and public entities who worked hand in hand to redefine the way products are identified for cross-border trade.
