AAA, which is short for Any question, Any country, Any item is the menu where you can ask any questions and give answers you know to everyone across the world without any barriers which country, item, language, and other matters bring.

4-1. How to search the item
This site is focusing on integrating all the functions into HS code. Even though a little burdensome, if you enter HS code according to instruction, you can use this site far more efficiently and acquire more various information.

The 4-unit option of HS code about the interested goods is composed of three ways: [Item search (HS)], Direct input, Irrelevant.

Item search (HS)
The choice of Item search (HS) method activates a pop-up window to select HS code where HS code can be selected as 3 ways: Keyword search, HS code search, Directory search.

  • Summary for Item Search
    • 3 options(Keyword Search, HS code Search, Directory Search) - showing the same results
      • Press Enter after entering key words, or click Search
      • Press Enter after HS codes, or click Search
      • Click category by section or chapter without entering any information
    • Click until a pop-up window disappears

  • Item Selection Method
    • You can have 3 options of item search, 1) Key words search, 2) HS code search, and 3) Directory search which will show the same results.
    • When it comes to item choice, continue to click until a pop-up window disappears.
    • You can type key words or HS codes(numbers), and press Enter, or click Search button.
    • HS Code Commodity Descriptions are mostly different from general terms.
    • Contains approximately 3 millions of key words in general terms by each language other than HS code commodity descriptions. Simply, such key words are categorized as exposed key words and concealed key words, all with corresponding HS codes.
    • Entering key words in native language or English is all available. (For the commodity which is unavailable in your native language, you can search in English.)
    • In entering key words, if you have a space between words, such words have the same search result as you have AND search form. (ex : women coat)
    • When entering numbers only, they're recognized as HS codes. Incomplete HS codes are okay to search commodities within such code category. The system will display matching commodities from front digits of code according to the input sequence.
    • If you choose key words or HS code search, you can search 5 areas at the same time, such as hidden general terms, HS description, classification case, English Further Classification and HS Notes.
    • If you click (item) Search button in the blank box, HS code directory screen is shown. Search by section(Main category) and search by chapter(Sub category) are interconnected, which mostly, short digit codes(heading) are all about raw materials, and longer digit codes(subheading) about finished products.

    ※ Example 1 : Key words search

    ※ Example 2 : HS Code search

    ※ Example 3 : Directory Search

Direct input
If you know the HS code of interested item, you just select Direct entry and then enter the 4 unit HS code at entry field. In case of the screen jumps from TCS result to AAA, the 4 unit HS code selected in time of TCS simulation is displayed.

In case of question without selecting the HS code of interested item, you just select irrelevant and go ahead.
