Headlamp HS Code: An Introduction
Headlamps, a type of lighting device, are attached to the head to provide illumination for one’s immediate surroundings. These are used primarily for outdoor activities like hiking, camping, and mountaineering. However, they can also be used in industrial or medical settings. There are many styles and shapes to choose from for headlamps. They can be powered by solar or battery energy. The Harmonized System Code (HS Code) is an international system that allows you to categorize goods and products for import and export. Headlamps fall under the HS Code 9405.40.40.00. This code covers any type of headlamp that emits light.
Trends and Challenges
Global headlamp sales are expected to increase significantly over the next few years due to increased outdoor and recreational activity demand, technological advances in head lamp design, and a growing global market for headlamps. The market faces some challenges due to the high production cost and lack of standardization. Traditional manufacturers are also facing stiff competition from LED headlamps, which are becoming increasingly popular.
The benefits of head lamps
Users can enjoy many benefits from headlamps, including increased safety and visibility even in low-light conditions. You can use them for repair work or to illuminate a particular area. They are easy to replace if they get lost or damaged.
Headlamps have many advantages, but there are also potential drawbacks. Headlamps can become bulky and difficult to wear for prolonged periods of time. They can also be easily lost or damaged in the environment and require frequent battery replacements. Headlamps may not be suitable for all activities, including running and cycling.
Principios and Key Concepts
The Head Lamp HS Code focuses on the most important concepts and principles. These include the types of headlamps, international standards that classify them and the potential advantages and disadvantages of their use.
Different types of headlamps
There are many styles and shapes to choose from when it comes to headlamps, including LED, halogen and Xenon. Each type of headlamp produces different levels of light intensity and requires different power requirements.
Headlamps are classified using the Harmonized System Code (or HS Code). This system is used for classifying goods and products for import and export. Headlamps are classified under the HS Code 94055.40.40.00.

Head Lamps in the US: HS Code
Head lamps in the United States are classified under the Harmonized Tariff Scheme (HTS), export/import code 8512.20.00.00. This code covers all head lamps for motor vehicles, including LED, Halogen, and xenon lamps. The HTS is an exhaustive listing of all goods that have been imported or exported to the US. It is used to classify goods and determine the tariffs and taxes. The US Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection and Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration jointly manage the HTS.
Headlamps in the EU: HS Code
Head lamps in the European Union are classified under code 8512 20 00 according to the Combined Nomenclature system (CN). This code covers all head lamps for motor vehicles including LED, halogen and xenon lamps. The CN is a complete nomenclature of goods imported into and exported from the EU. It is used to classify goods and determine the applicable tariffs and taxes. The European Commission and EU member states jointly manage the CN.
Tariffs and taxes
Headlamp tariffs and taxes are subject to change depending on where they were imported. The tariffs and taxes imposed by the US on head lamps range between 0-2.5%. The EU has tariffs and taxes on head lamps that range from 0-7.5%.
- Is there any restriction on headlamp import or export?
- What information do I need to submit for import/export of headlamps?
Yes, both the US as the EU have restrictions on head lamp import and export. Head lamp importers and exporters must register with the US Department of Homeland Security and get a US Customs and Border Protection CBP importer number. EU Economic Operators Registration and Identification numbers (EORI) are required for importers and exporters. Importers and exporters must also provide the appropriate HS or CN codes, a detailed description, quantity and value, as well as the country of origin and destination.
It is therefore important to know the applicable HS/CN code, as well as the tariffs and taxes associated with importing and exporting head lamps. It is important to know the requirements for filing for the import/export or registration of head lamps.
When dealing with import/export of head lamps, it is important to understand the HS/CN code as well as the associated tariffs. It is also important to know the requirements for filing for the import/export or registration of head lamps.
