Customs Compliance (EU)

o ALL vendors, domestic & import are required to complete customs descriptions for their items

o In order for URBN to make accurate declarations to HMRC for import into the U.K., it is essential that vendors provide accurate information needed for Customs entry:

Please note we also need this information for our own records. Tradestone is our record keeping system that all URBN parties can access (copywriters, merchandisers, tax department etc…)

Accurate product descriptions

This is to be managed in the update customs description query on the Tradestone homepage. This is the responsibility of  the vendor to ensure accurate and timely entry of descriptions

Each commodity has different requirements, for more information please visit –

 Once the customs description is accurately completed a HTS code will be assigned by URBN

o Materials used in construction of products (particularly fibre contents for apparel products) must be accurately identified and supported by testing

o Units and Price must be accurate on the Tradestone Commercial Invoice

o Actual manufacturer information must be on Tradestone Commercial Invoice

*Failure to comply with the above expectations may cause a PO not to be shipped or to be delayed in shipment. If this occurs the vendor may be liable to pay holding fees or a non-compliance charge*
