Commodities Included in EMAlert

There are 50 commodities included in the commercial off the shelf (COTS) version of the EMAlert. The commodities chosen aim to represent a diverse group of commodity categories as well as represent both historically adulterated and never-adulterated commodities.

For several attributes an accompanying harmonized system commodity code is needed for quantification. The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System generally referred to as "Harmonized System" or simply "HS" is a multipurpose international product nomenclature developed by the World Customs Organization (WCO)

The following section shows each commodity and its accompanying HS code that comes with the COTS version of EMAlert. Questions about how to update the commodity list for your specific needs? Email us at
