Harmonized System Advanced: Stones and metals – Sections XIII to XV (Chapters 68 to 83)



The main aim of this course is to help trainees use the Harmonized System (HS) Nomenclature in a consistent and effective manner and thus facilitate the classification of internationally traded goods.


  • Provide trainees with the necessary tools to understand the classification of stones and metals.
  • Provide trainees with effective and suitable resources to understand and master the commodity classification methodology.
  • By means of goods classification exercises, equip trainees with the knowledge required to apply the Harmonized System Nomenclature correctly.

It is highly recommended that trainees begin studying the Harmonized System by the WCO HS Foundation Course which provides an introduction to all the most essential basic concepts of the HS, main categories of commodities, common challenges faced by HS users when classifying products in the HS, as well as the organization of tariff classification work.

This course was developed under the framework of the EU-WCO Programme for Harmonized System in Africa (HS-Africa Programme), funded by the European Union.
