New gaps are emerging worldwide in all customs tariffs that are using the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (Harmonized System Convention) following the technical revision as of 1 January 2007. Thirty-four headings are not in use for the next four to five years. This contribution shows the history of gaps within the nomenclature and examines their placements.
