Saudi Arabia Customs Authorities have added four additional digits to the eight digit codes provided by the Unified Gulf Cooperation Council creating the new Integrated Customs Tariff system based on twelve digit tariff codes.

  • All importers and exporters are required to apply the new Integrated Customs Tariff.
  • Implementation of the classification system is expected to facilitate the customs controls and duty.
  • The first six digits correspond to the World Customs Organization’s Harmonized System.
  • Significant number of Harmonized System codes used by imports and exports in Saudi Arabia will no longer be valid according to the new Integrated Tariff System.
