Number of Code digits


I understand that the Commodity Codes should have eight digits – so for example the Commodity Code for : “843141 Buckets, Shovels, Grabs and Grips” shows just six digits. Is this correct?


Hi Bruce, the first six digits are supposed to be harmonised across all customs authorities, the code for the UK would be 843141 0000.

Dear Bruce,

Tariff codes in the main have 10 digits the full code being 843141 00 00. If you are importing the goods you would normally show the full code for your import entry and if you are exporting you normally only show the first 6 digits of the commodity on the export customs system.
Please feel free to contact me directly as I would be happy to assist / advise / quote you on your current business email: tel no. 01932 565225

By my list it is 84314100
