Changes to Customs Tariff import classification

The ABS has completed an import classification feasibility study into the creation of specific new Combined Australian Customs Tariff Nomenclature and Statistical Classification (Customs Tariff) statistical codes under subheadings 7228, 7303, 7308, 8443, 8473, 8528, and 8607. The new codes will be opened on 1 July 2015. The codes being replaced will close on 30 June 2015.

The tables below compare the existing set of codes with the final new set of codes. For any questions about these, please contact International Trade on Canberra (02) 6252 5409 or email international.trade@abs.gov.au.
