I think our technologists should join in the Commodity Code classification process, particularly as our products are technically sophisticated, do you agree?

Yes Totally!! But… remember, whilst technology specialists may be able to describe goods in their terms, the classification of goods for import and export follows fairly precise rules in the UK Integrated Tariff. Whilst taking the advice of technologists, you should always consult the chapter and section notes in the Tariff and any of the number of guides to assist in classifying particular types of goods. Ultimately, the Harmonised System (HS) Explanatory Notes should be consulted. If you are still uncertain, get in touch with the Tariff Classification Team via E-Mail – classification.enquiries@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk
