A Harmonized System for Intended Use Codes?

Intended Use Code

The US Government is requesting that the World Customs Organization (WCO) establish an international BASE CODE set of intended use codes. Governments often need to understand the intended use of an imported product to effectively review products for admission at borders. Although there is the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System can be used to denote the static characteristics of a product, there is no standardized global set of intended use codes.

The US has proposed just such a system based on a standardized list of codes developed by the ITDS Product Information Committee (PIC). These codes were developed for adoption in the US, and is coordinating with the Canadian Border Services Agencies on behalf of the Canadian Other Government Departments under the auspices of the US Beyond the Border Single Window Initiative the adoption of these intended use codes as a regional standard.  This code set is offered as the starting point for the development of an international standard by WCO.

Description of code set

A standardized intended use code set must meet two objectives: 1) ensure that each consignment can be codified with a high-level intended use code that is globally applicable; and 2) allow relevant specific use cases to be identified in accordance with national regulations.  To accomplish both purposes, a two-part intended use code value is proposed, similar in concept to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule.   The first part of the intended use code would be a globally managed base code that denotes the high-level intended use for that imported product.  The second part of the code would be a nationally managed sub code that uses a three-digit ISO country code prefix to identify the nation that defined the sub code.  The use of sub codes by national governments would be optional.  An illustration of the code structure is provided in diagram below.

Why have intended use codes?

Other Government Agencies (OGA), or as they are known globally, Participating Government Agencies (PGA) are involved in determining whether a product is covered by an import regulation or not. A sample of a PGA code is a code that US Fish and Wildlife may attach to an HS code so traders and government enforcement know we cannot import new raw Ivory for example.

Historically, many of the Participating Government Agencies (PGAs) have collected a text description on their forms to provide an indication of the use of the product.  In fact, the intended use may sometimes be the critical piece of information to determine which PGA has border jurisdiction over a product.  In shifting from the paper environment to electronic data collection, the use of a standardized code will allow that determination to be made on a systemic basis and allow for the more efficient distribution of data to the appropriate PGA for admissibility determination.  Again, by having a standardized set of codes that can be processed by computer-based targeting systems, both the importing trade and regulators can begin to speak in a common language and PGA targeting systems and coordinated border management can become more efficient and effective.

CATAIR Appendix R - Intended Use Codes

Appendix R of the Customs and Trade Automated Interface Requirements (CATAIR) documentation outlines the PGA Intended Use coding system currently used in the US.

Intended Use Base Codes

Intended use codes are constructed from the designation of a Base Code followed by a Sub Code, if applicable. The intended use base code designates the general use case intended for an imported product, while the sub code designates specific use circumstances that also apply. In all cases when reporting Intended Use Codes, report the full code (Base Code plus Sub Code) in the PGA Message Set. After determining the appropriate intended use base code below, consult the list of Intended Use Sub Codes that follow to determine if any specific use circumstances useful in interpreting the applicability of national regulations on product shipments apply. If none apply, report the three digit base code followed by a period and 6 zeros with a hyphen separating the first three zeros from the last 3 zeros as in the example below:

EXAMPLE 1: The Intended Use Code for grain imported for use in animal feed, where no sub code applies, is reported as “010.000-000”.

If a sub code circumstance does apply, report the three digit base code followed by a period and the 6-digit sub code with a hyphen separating the first three digits from the last 3 digits of the sub code as in the example below:

EXAMPLE 2: The Intended Use Code for an automotive part imported for commercial assembly (base code 155) of an on-the-road vehicle (sub code 840-008) is reported as “155.840-008”.

This should have happened a long time ago.

How many years do you think this would take to develop and put into use? Would it be primarily for Imports to the US?

A junk yard is a great place to go if you are in need of used car parts. Some old cars are repaired and resold. These are vehicles that may have value as a classic car if restored. Selling your vehicle is the first and most utilized option when try to get rid of a old car.
