Why Should You Attend:
The World Customs Organization (WCO) revises the Harmonized Tariff Schedule once every five years at the international level of the harmonized tariff number (first six digits). These amendments went into effect on January 1, 2017. In addition, each member country can make their own modifications beyond the first six digits.
