HS Code l Chapter 01 - Live Animals

Like these posts is a replacement of Harmonized Tariff Code Page as a development of information presentation, and it is remarked by words of HS code that preceding the post title.

HS Code
The Harmonized System (HS) is an international nomenclature for the classification of products published by the World Customs Organization ( It allows participating countries to classify traded goods on a common basis for customs purposes.

At the international level, the HS nomenclature is a six-digit code system for classifying goods.

The HS comprises approximately 5,300 article/product descriptions that appear as headings and subheadings, arranged in 99 chapters, grouped in 21 sections that refer to specific product categories (animal products, vegetable products, mineral products, etc).

The six-digit structure can be broken down into three parts:

The first two digits (HS-2) identify the “chapter” the goods are classified in, e.g. 09 = Coffee, Tea, Maté and Spices; each “chapter” is then divided into “headings”, identified by the first four digits (HS-4) of the 6-digit code, e.g. 09.02 = Tea, whether or not flavoured; the six digits together (HS-6) are more specific and identify a “subheading” within its “heading”, e.g. 09.02.03 = Black fermented tea and partly fermented tea,… Up to the HS-6 digit level, all countries classify products in the same way (a few exceptions exist where some countries apply old versions of the HS nomenclature).
