U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) today issued a release as a update relating to the third list of products subject to the “Section 301” trade remedies assessed on imports from China. CSMS #18-000575 (28 September 2018)
CBP’s release concerns new subheadings under Chapter 44 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). CBP explained that effective for goods entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 12:01 AM eastern daylight time on 1 October 2018, U.S. Note 20(f) to Subchapter III of Chapter 99 will be modified by deleting 14 eight-digit HTSUS subheadings of Chapter 44, and adding 38 new corresponding eight digit HTSUS subheadings of Chapter 44. These modifications are due to changes in the HTSUS nomenclature for Chapter 44.
