both, you need to properly classify your products

codes to meet U.S. and foreign government's Customs
requirements. Do it right and your goods should fly
through Customs. Do it wrong and your goods might
never make it to their destination.

to classify your own company's products. You'll gain
an understanding of the general notes of the tariff
schedule, which will give you a strong base for understanding
