Customs procedure code (CPC)

A customs procedure code (CPC) is a unique code used by customs authorities to identify the type of customs procedures that a shipment is subject to. The CPC is used to track the movement of goods across international borders and to ensure that the proper duties, taxes, and other fees are paid. It is typically assigned to a shipment by the customs authority in the country of origin and is included on the customs declaration form.
