Trade Notification - Schedule B
14 Oct 2019

Schedule B Required by U.S. Government
A Schedule B is a 10 digit international code for exporting goods out of the United States (U.S.) into other countries, to include Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic. The Schedule B is administered by the United States Census Bureau and used to track the amount of trade goods that are being exported from the U.S. The U.S. Census Bureau keeps records of the amount of exports by country, quantity, and dollar amount.

The Schedule B Classification book and number can be found on the U.S. Census Bureau’s website. https://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/schedules/b/index.html. For assistance, you may contact the U.S. Census Bureau at 1-800-549-0595, option 2, or send an email to: eid.scheduleb@census.gov.

We understand that this can be confusing at times, though we would be glad to provide assistance to better understand any required rules and regulations that must be followed when shipping goods out of the U.S.
