[GTA Course] Classification of Raw Materials and their Completed Articles – March 2

Classification of Raw Materials and their Completed Articles – March 2

Ever wonder about how imported raw and base materials (such as ores, fuels, minerals, salts) classified in USHTS Chapters 25, 26, and 28 are classified and both they and their HTS classifications after they are transformed into those of finished materials in USHTS Chapters 68, 69, 70 and 71?

If you import such ores, fuels, oils, waxes, salts or stones or their derivative finished products such as, finished items made from stone in Chapter 68, ceramics in Chapter 69, glass in USHTS Chapters 70 and/or jewelry classifiable in Chapter 71, this course is for you!

In this one-day course, we will examine the following topics and subtopics:
· How these raw and base materials are classified;
· The classification of finished products derived from them;
· Outliers, products that are made from them but are not in the listed USHTS Chapters;
· How mixed products such as “cermets” are classified;
· How the “use” provisions come into play;
· The classification of parts and accessories manufactured from glass, ceramics or stone materials;
· Antidumping and countervailing duty cases involving items classified in USHTS Chapters 25-27 and 67-71.

What US import sectors are primarily affected? Importers of ores, oils, stones, salts, and fuels. Buyers of foreign made finished glass products, ceramics, jewelry of all types, and monumental items. If you miss this course, you lose out on the tools that can both make your import program more compliant, but also demonstrate an interest in a due diligence approach to classification that should be a strong mitigating factor against any future CBP penalty cases involving your imports.

We will have a hands-on approach with many relevant classification scenarios that we will work on together to resolve in a mutual, accurate and collegial determination. Join us! You are most welcome!
