The HS code is created for categorizing internationally traded goods and covers the first six digits of the universal part. HTS is a code system that can be up to 12 digits. HS codes are universal, while HTS codes are country-specific. For example, the USA uses a 10-digit HTS code, while EU countries use an 8-digit HTS code. During the export or import phase, the customs procedures of the products are made according to the HS number. In short, there is an HS code for each tradable item.
