Schedule B and Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) Updated in the Automated Export System (AES)
Effective immediately, the Schedule B and Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) tables have been updated to accept the 484(f) statistical changes to the January 1, 2022 codes. AES will accept shipments with outdated codes during a grace period for 30 days beyond the expiration date of December 31, 2021. Reporting an outdated code after the 30-day grace period will result in a fatal error. The ACE AESDirect program has been updated with the January 1, 2022 codes and will accept shipments with outdated codes during the grace period. There will be a second AES update later this month to add new Schedule B and HTS codes resulting from international changes to the 2022 Harmonized System.
The 2022 Schedule B and HTS tables are available for downloading at: http://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/aes/documentlibrary/#concordance
