Correct customs tariff numbers

The classification of goods in customs tariff is obligatory for every customs declaration. The customs tariff number influences all foreign trade processes.

In addition, correct classification of tariff numbers is becoming more and more important. The growing supply chains abroad are facing increased protectionism. At the same time, errors or deviations in foreign trade audits are easier to identify due to digitalization.

Our experts at eDOC AS are trained in technical and customs law. They are supported by our software solution eTAR DATA.

Consult us



During sample analysis, we check the existing data quality of material master data for tariffing. For this, we analyse the following criteria:

  • Customs tariff numbers
  • Material texts
  • Goods descriptions

The data check enables a clear preparation of the actual foreign trade master data and simplifies focused processing.


In a workshop, we identify the need for action, define initial work packages and interfaces and give you an insight into our work processes. At the same time, we get to know your goods and special features and define an individual service.

Tariff classification

After a review and workshop, the search for missing customs tariff numbers as well as the review and adjustment of existing customs tariff numbers begins.

The research uses the following sources:

  • Technical specification
  • Drawings
  • Product catalogue
  • Electronic customs tariff

When assigning customs tariff numbers, we follow the Combined Nomenclature (CN) and the customs tariff TARIC (Integrated Tariff of the European Community). Outside the EU and in the international area, other standards are considered, including Tares (CH), ASEAN (South East Asia), HTSUS (US).


For detailed traceability, ATLAS goods description is prepared which is oriented on customs tariff. This description is set up according to uniform and comprehensible modules.

The assignment of the customs tariff number is optionally substantiated by the following services:

  • Specification of the general regulations (AV) used for classification
  • Specification of the relevant export codes
  • Specification of the relevant export control classification
