• International classification of coffee products

    Among the trade-related product nomenclatures, the following three are of particular interest to coffee:

    HS – Harmonized System: The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (Harmonized System) is the system for classification of goods in international trade and for customs tariffs. It has been developed under the auspices of the World Customs Organization. HS assigns a six-digit code to general categories. In most countries, these codes are broken down to a more detailed level referred to as the tariff line. Details at www.wcoomd.org

    CN – Combined Nomenclature – is the European Union’s eight-digit coding system. It is based on the HS. Details at www.europa.eu.int

    – Standard Industrial Trade Classification – was developed by the United Nations. It is commonly used for trade statistics and by trade analysts. The current version is Revision 3.
