Customs uses a commodity code or European HS (Harmonized System) code to classify products.
You need to provide 8 digits codes
. By using this code in the data you send to DPD,
DPD can make the correct Customs declaration.
Customs then knows:
- What products are in your consignment.
- How much import duty and other import taxes must be paid on these products.
The HS codes for you to classify your products can be found at: www.tariffnumber.com
Attention: for a number of HS codes you also have to enter the quantity
(m², kg, pair, etc.) in the description. So if you send a rolled-up wool carpet, you have to enter: "wool carpet (5m²) in the description field (DPD Shipper) CCONTENT field (self-printers). Other examples: ‘water (0,5 liters)’, ‘charcoal (10 kg)’, ‘shoes (4 pairs)’, etc.
