Automated oversight to eliminate duty payment and reporting errors, ensure regulatory compliance, and mitigate legal liability.

HS classification has long been recognized as the most complex and expensive element of the international trade process.

This has compelled many traders to outsource the classification of their goods to third party service providers, such as customs brokers or consultants. While this decision may offer some operational relief, it does not absolve traders from being held liable for any and all classification errors — no matter who provided the service.

Customs authorities accept that traders may have to rely on third parties for HS classification. At the same time however, they require importers and exporters to be vigilant over the classifications done on their behalf. The absence of oversight exposes traders to onerous monetary penalties, shipping delays, and potentially negative press.
