What is a tariff classification and where can I find it?

Customs classification, also known as an ‘HS code’, is a 10-digit number that identifies the product you are importing (often to a very specific degree). It is essential for the following reasons:

  • identifying admissible and inadmissible goods
  • calculating duty-rates
  • statistical record-keeping

Canada’s tariff can be found on the CBSA’s website, however Border Bee strongly recommends contacting a customs broker for¬†assisting in classifying your products for new importers.
