Is the Schedule B export commodity classification system being eliminated?

No, both Schedule B and the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) numbers are acceptable for reporting export shipments in AES. Please note that there are a few exceptions when the reporting of HTS numbers as export classifications are not allowed. These exceptions are presented in the front of the HTS as well as in the AESTIR “Appendix V – HTS Numbers that Cannot be Reported in AES”.
Schedule B numbers cannot be reported in lieu of the import HTS number when reporting import shipments.
