View   Export/Import Commodity Code Changes Effective With January 2017 Data Release
Periodically, commodity codes are replaced, redefined or re-categorized. These codes become obsolete and are replaced by new codes. Once a code becomes obsolete data is no longer reported for it, but, instead is reported in the newly defined codes. For details on the changes follow the GATS menu items: “Reference Info / Revision/Notices / Code Changes” or click on the “View” link to the left. Remember to click on the Imports tab if you are looking for the import changes. Important: Please remember that user defined product groups that include the obsolete codes will have to be updated to include the new codes.
View   BICO HS-6 Aggregates Biodiesel & Blends > B30 Revised
The BICO (HS-6) aggregate Biodiesel & Blends > B30 has been updated to correct an HS code change, affecting data from 2012 to present. Specifically HS 382490 has been removed as this code is now exclusively mineral diesel. The BICO (HS-10) aggregate Biodiesel & Blends > B30 remains unchanged as 3824.90.4030 became inactive in 2012, but remains in the aggregate to report data from 2011 (the only year the HS code was active).
