Harmonization Code Required for Some Countries

While the Harmonization Code field is listed as optional, some countries are known to reject shipments that do not include the HS Tariff code. The HS Tariff code is a unique number associated with specific products such as “phonograph records” or “CDs.” You must find the product and code that best matches your order.
