2024-03-01 15:52:43

Injection molding is a popular manufacturing process for making plastic products. When customers buy our injection machines and peripherals to import or export, businesses must use HS codes for clearance and tariff classification. Customers often ask us for HS codes to ensure smooth international trade operations. This article will explore the world of HS codes, specifically focusing on Injection Machine HS Codes.



What is an HS code?

HS codes, or Harmonized System codes, are a standardized numerical method for classifying products for international trade. They are used by customs authorities worldwide to identify products when assessing duties and taxes. The HS Code consists of six digits, which can be extended to eight or ten digits for more specific classifications.
