[GTA Course] Tariff Classification of Chemical Products – May 18

Tariff Classification of Chemical Products – May 18

Classifying chemicals and chemical products under Section VI of the Harmonized System (HS) can be one of the most challenging product areas for importers and brokers alike. Even with a chemistry degree, it is difficult to correlate that knowledge with the structure of the HS provisions for chemical products.

Join us for this 1-day workshop where we will debunk some of the mysteries of chemicals headings of Chapters 28 and 29 and their relationship.  We will also offer practical tools for classifying chemicals and chemical products.

Key Topics

  • Desktop references for trade compliance professionals with and without science degrees to navigate the provisions of chapters 28 and 29
  • Identification and distinction of common chemical structures (e.g., halogenated derivatives of aromatic hydrocarbons, ketones and quinones from their derivatives, saturated from unsaturated acyclic monocarboxylic acids) 
  • Sector-specific examples such as laboratory reagents, pharmaceuticals and automotive additives, and a review of the broad scope of chemical mixtures captured in heading 3824 
  • Pharmaceuticals in chapter 30, and bath items in chapters 33 and 34
