Be in the Know: Countdown to Important Commodity Code Changes Coming January 2024

Prepare for a shift in January 2024, when some commodity codes will be modified. This transition has significant implications for cross-border businesses, mandating a proactive approach to staying ahead of the developing legal landscape.

Commodity codes act as product labels; changing them affects how items are declared at customs and how the supply chain operates. Understanding and reacting to these changes is critical for accurate customs declarations and simplified supply chain procedures, as commodity codes are the foundation of trade classifications.

It is critical that you are aware of these changes and have a plan of action so that everything continues to run smoothly when the new commodities codes take effect.

It is crucial to note that the existing commodity codes will remain in effect until 2023. Only make modifications when there are no more customs declarations required for this year, which should be toward the end of the year.
