Understanding Commodity Codes – An Online Course

Understanding Commodity Codes – An Online Course

Understanding Commodity Codes - An Online Course

An introductory course providing candidates with fundamental skills and knowledge to prepare and process a system of classifying their parts for both import and export.

It is fully supported with user friendly and up-to-date notes (including practical experience on classifying products using the UK Global Tariff) to ensure the skills learned can be used effectively back in the workplace. 

Candidates will, after attending this course, be aware of what commodity codes are and what they are used for. They will have a basic understanding of the process of how to classify goods and would have successfully classified a range of goods to gain experience in using the UK Global Tariff and where to go for further advice. 

Who should attend?

International trade and finance administrators and managers, those from procurement and technical experts who are responsible for identifying commodity codes.

This leads to an understanding of the duties, taxes, and controls required for import and export. Mistakes in this area can be costly and serious so companies must ensure they have the knowledge to manage this properly in their organisations.

The course is valuable for both newcomers wanting an introduction and overview, and experienced staff needing a refresher on current requirements. 

Each course can also count as a credit towards the British Chamber of Commerce Foundation Award in International Trade.  Candidates attending six or more courses and obtaining six or more credits receive the Award.
