Tariff Classification and Customs Valuation WorkshopAll goods and materials imported into the Customs Territory of the United States must be classified. The process of determining a goods’ or material’s proper placement within the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of US (HTSUS) is called classification. Classification determines not only how much duty will be collected by Customs and Border Protection (CBP), but may also dictate the Rules Of Origin for duty preference programs eligibility such as NAFTA and GSP. Accurate classification involves a complicated process of applying the HTS General Rules of Interpretation, the Legal Notes, additional Explanatory Notes, and customs valuation.
This class concentrates on tariff classification and customs valuation. Students will thoroughly review the customs valuation laws with an emphasis on both compliance and the opportunity to reduce duty. This topic is vital for preparing to take the Customs Broker License Examination.
