HTS Numbering Scheme

Hello All,

I got the requirement to modify the HTS structure for Malaysia and Mexico

Malaysia and Mexico are modifying their HTS structure. Malaysia is moving from current 9 to 10 digits and Mexico is moving from current 8 to 10 digits.

We have existing numbering scheme for Malaysia and Mexico.

My question is:

Is it sufficient to just modify the structure in the existing numbering scheme alone? Example (modifying 8 to 10 / 9 to 10 for each scheme), so that I can upload the HTS files without any errors.

Or do i need to modify something else for this requirement.

Also, want to know new structure for Malaysia and Mexico. How to get that.

Below is the current structure and do I need to add one more item here to accommodate the extra length.

Kindly suggest on this requirements.

Thanks

    Hi Diwakar,

    my 2 cents, generally when there is a change with any country's tariff structure length, you shouldn't modify the scheme which is already defined as it will cause data inconsistencies. Rather create a new numbering scheme with the new structure with a new activation date and re-classify your products with the new numbering scheme.

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks,
    Shrini

    Hi Diwakar,

    As Shrini pointed out in the above message, please create the new numbering scheme and proceed further, so that you would not have any issues with the existing data. Lets say, ZMY-HTS would now be ZMY-HTS1 and ZMX-HTS --> ZMX-HTS1

    Thanks,

    Hi Srinivas and Viswa

    As suggested by you people , I have done the below configuration.

    1. Created the new numbering scheme for Malaysia with 10 digits

    2. Assign new numbering scheme to the Malaysia legal regulation

    I have added the new entry for the new numbering scheme and provided the new validity dates (current date)

    3. XML files uploaded with 10 digits

    4. Reclassified for the few products

    as of now it is good and working as expected.Let me know if anything wrong on the configuration part.

    I need a small clarification on Compatibility for the two numbering schemes old and new.

    Is it mandatory that old (9 digits) and new (10 digits) numbering schemes must be compatible ? Since both are having the different Structure , system showing that NOT compatible.

    I have read some post here that old and new schemes must be in compatible , then i got this question in my mind .Can you please clarify me.

    Thanks
