What Is The Difference Between ITC-HS Code And HS Code?
ITC stands for Indian Trade Classification or Indian Tariff Code. ITC-HS CODE CAN BE CALLED AS INDIAN VERSION OF HS CODE. ITC HS Code has an 8 digit nomenclature. The first 6 digits of the HS Code are the same for all the countries that follow WCO standards.
US (United States) HS code follows a 10 digit nomenclature system. Remember the first six digit is the same as WCO standard.
The main difference between ITC-HS Code and HSN Code is that ITC has added further 2 digits in the 6 digit HS structure to classify “Tariff Items”. This addition has been done by following the existing rules of WCO without any changes in the existing structure.
What is the difference between the HS Code and HSN code?
HS code is a six-digit nomenclature system, which is followed worldwide. But HSN code is an eight-digit nomenclature system generally called ITC HSN code (Indian Trade Classification or Indian Tariff Code Harmonized System of Nomenclature) especially followed in India.
Note: First six digit of both HS CODE and HSN CODE is same.
