The World Customs Organization (WCO) has announced changes to the Harmonized System (HS) nomenclature for 2022. Over 200 countries use the HS as the basis for their tariff systems, including the United States. There are 351 sets of amendments in the 2022 HS, which enters into force on January 1, 2022.

The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) has announced its recommended changes for the US Harmonized Tariff Schedule to align with the WCO’s modifications. USITC’s recommendations are outlined in a report, and they include changes to tariff descriptions as well as tariff numbers.
