Access More Than 32,000 Harmonized Tariff Codes Now in CHEMLIST on STN

03. February 2012

You can now search the new Harmonized Tariff Code (HTC) field in the CHEMLIST database on STN. Other CHEMLIST enhancements include EU Customs Codes display in the HTC field and chemical names in more languages.

The CHEMLIST database now lists the HTC number assigned to a chemical substance by the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS). More than 200 countries rely on HTC as a basis for customs tariffs and collection of international trade statistics.

The World Customs Organization maintains the HTC as part of an international cooperative effort to standardize import and export classifications on internationally shipped products.

Importing and exporting within the European Community requires the EU Customs Code that displays in the HTC field. The EU Customs Code is the tariff classification system used in the European Community's Combined Nomenclature, based on the HS.

As part of the addition of the HTC and EU Customs Codes enhancements, CHEMLIST now contains chemical names in the following languages, when available:

  • Italian
  • Dutch
  • Portuguese
  • Finnish
  • Danish
  • Swedish
  • Lithuanian
  • Slovak
  • Slovenian
  • Czech
  • Estonian
  • Polish
  • Hungarian

Rely on CHEMLIST as your convenient, single source for identifying regulatory requirements for specific substances from many of the world's most significant regulated substance lists.
