The Harmonized System (HS) is the standardized coding system of names and numbers used in international trade. Over 200 countries representing about 98 percent of world trade use the HS as a basis for customs tariffs and the compilation of international trade data and statistics. HS compliance refers to the mandatory proper classification and declaration of goods. As an importer or exporter, you are responsible for the correct declaration of your goods.

Why is the HS important?
The accurate classification of goods is a crucial component of a healthy and prosperous economy. It ensures a level playing field for all participants and enables governments to monitor the state of the economy and establish appropriate policies.
HS data is assembled from declarations of imports and exports. The data is then used to determine appropriate duty rates, negotiate trade agreements, maintain trade statistics, and effectively identify goods and shipments that pose a risk to the health, safety and security of Canada.
