NACPS is available for products of service industries, some mining and manufacturing. NACPS is still under development. Identical products produced by multiple industries will carry the same title, definition, and code numbers in NAPCS, regardless of their industries of origin.

Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS)
The HS exists as a common standard for describing products worldwide for reporting goods to customs and other government agencies. Used by more than 180 countries worldwide, and almost 100% of international trade. Created and administered by the World Customs Organization (WCO). The first 6 digits of the HS are used universally. Each country may then add to the original 6 to suit its own tariff and statistical needs, creating 8, 10, and sometimes 12 digit national codes.
