The World Customs Organization 2017 version of the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System has been released and will be implemented in 2017 in various countries around the world. As a party to the Harmonized System Convention, China Customs has completed the adjustment of the tax number of related commodities and will be implemented on January 1, 2017.

It is understood that the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System is a catalogue of commodity classifications developed by the World Customs Organization with reference to the classification of customs tariffs, statistics and transportation in major international countries. It is generally revised every four to six years. The 2017 edition of the Harmonized System Amendment covers a wide range of commodities, and the corresponding import and export tariff adjustments are also higher than in the general years.

According to the 2017 import and export tax rules, the transfer involves about 760 items in China's eight tax items, accounting for about one-tenth of the total number of import and export tax items. In addition, many of the chapters in the tax rules have been adjusted, and the relevant tariff reduction agreements and preferential tax rate for the preferential tax rate products will be adjusted accordingly.

Compared with the 2012 edition of the Harmonized System, the new edition of the Harmonized System has a total of 242 amendments, focusing on environmental protection, ecological sustainable development, new changes in science and technology, and the development of new forms of international trade, further clarifying the classification of commodities. It is expected that more than 10,000 companies will be required to amend the declared commodity tax number.

It is worth paying attention to LED and lighting companies. In the new edition of the "Harmonized System" catalogue, Chapter 85, Note 39, a new sub-directory has been added, and a light-emitting diode (LED) bulb (tube) has been added. Its customs code is 85395000.

Customs Product Code (HS Cod) is a code for product classification when importing and exporting products. It not only plays an important role in the statistical analysis of import and export data, but also uses the tax rate adjustment method to implement the necessary industries. The necessary foundation for support and trade management policies. With the rapid development of LED lighting products, its position in international trade is increasingly important, but there is no special customs code, but there is no separate in the existing classification catalog. The classification and coding of LED lighting products is not conducive to the current statistical analysis of the import and export of LED lighting products and the related tax rate adjustment work. Due to the multilateral nature of global trade, the addition and revision of customs codes is the result of global negotiating activities.
