On February 5, 2018, the Census Bureau announced that The Schedule B commodity classification codes for export have been updated for 2018. Codes are updated every January and July at the 10-digit level. All of the following resources can be found online.
- The new 2018 Schedule B book is available in HTML and PDF formats. All current and historic codes added or removed from the Schedule B going back to the last major revision, in January 2017, can be found in the “Add/Delete List” under “Browse chapters.”
- Outdated Schedule B codes are available. The “Obsolete to New” list is a quick way to see which codes are no longer valid, starting January 2018, and which new codes replaced them. Notice that from 2016 forward, there were obsolete codes in both January and July. Before 2016, the Schedule B numbers were only updated annually.
- A third resource available is the Schedule B Search Engine.
