Item information will typically include what the included items are, a description of each item, a brief description of the intended use of each item, the country of origin, the quantity of each item, and the unit used in measuring the quantity of each item (rolls, stacks, individual). Descriptions of items must also include what materials each item is made of and the item number, if applicable.
There may be a space on your form to include a Harmonized Tariff Schedule code (HTC, HTS, HS or Schedule B number) for your item. These codes, maintained by the World Customs Organization, specify what type of item is being sold and what tariff will be charged for importing it. While not always necessary, this will help expedite the import or export process and allows you to know at what rate you will be charged import duties. These codes can be found either on the US International Trade Commission's website. Note that the country of origin information must be filled in with the country in which the item was manufactured, not necessarily where it is being shipped from.
