HSN Item 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
    • If you select several countries at the same time, continue to search by country in conjunction.
    • Continue to click until the result screen of search country is shown.

  • Selection of Language and Item
    • In trade, selecting commodities means selecting their corresponding HS codes. According to WCO Agreement, every country has the same 6-digit HS code system(sub-digits may become different). Given the principle, HSN system is logically designed to make you easily match HS codes of other countries with those of your country through 6-digit HS codes connection.
    • You may not find HS codes and description of other countries in your own language, but our matching system between 6-digit HS codes surly help you navigate through exact HS codes and descriptions you want to find.
    • This is how HSN system helps you search HS codes according to languages.
      • When a Korean, Chinese(simplified), Japanese, or Chinese(traditional) user tries to search commodities with HS codes of other countries, HS code system in your own language may serve as a navigator. In this case, your country is automatically selected as a search country.
        Example) Processes of the case that a Japanese user searches commodities of China first and then Korea later: ① find commodity in Japan HS code ⇒ ② match China HS code ⇒ ③ match Korea HS code ⇒ ④ show search results for Japan, China and Korea
      • If you are an English user, you can directly navigate English HS codes of your search countries without using the above navigator, matching HS codes of other countries in a sequential order.

  • 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.
    • You can continue to click until the result screen is shown.
    • 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.
    • HSN system 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.
