Automotive Motor Vehicle Tariff Codes

Harmonized Tariff System codes and Schedule B codes for trade of motor vehicles.

To facilitate the analysis of trade data for motor vehicles on a market-based model, the Office of Transportation and Machinery (OTM) has created product groupings from the available, individual 10-digit product codes.  The core of the codes is contained in Chapter 87, “Vehicles Other Than Railway or Tramway Rolling-Stock, and Parts and Accessories Thereof” of the internationally-agreed Harmonized Tariff System (HTS).  We list these groups and their codes below.  Some codes are not valid for current years but are included to assure that data for products so coded for previous years are retrieved from the database and assigned to the appropriate OTM group. 

The OTM groups are not “official” product subcategories, and are not listed in the Harmonized Tariff System nomenclature published by the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) for coding imports < https://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/index.htm > , nor in the parallel “Schedule B” published by the U.S. Census Bureau for coding exports < https://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/schedules/b/index.html > .  The OTM attempts to closely approximate the core automotive industry by excluding certain items for example, parts explicitly listed for motorcycles, golf-carts, snowmobiles, agricultural equipment, etc.

Readers should realize that OTM is not the only, nor the “official,” U.S. government source for trade data on the auto industry, nor are we able to produce custom data runs for the public.  Persons seeking data for individual or different product codes are welcome to utilize at no charge the data retrieval system operated by the USITC to access the federal government’s official trade data base.  Please note, some of the data on the trade database may be restricted from the public.  The ITC’s retrieval system, Trade DataWeb, can be accessed at < https://dataweb.usitc.gov/ >.

Descriptions for each import code may be obtained from the ITC web site.

Descriptions of export codes are on the Census Bureau web site.
