Import tariff

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced several reclassification rulings in the January 1, 2015 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions. One of those reclassifications will result in a significant lowering of the tariff applicable to DVDs and blu-ray discs. At issue are the classification and the applicable tariff for certain DVDs and blu-ray discs pre-recorded with movies in digital form as proprietary format recorded discs. These items had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 8523.40.50 and subject to a 2.7% duty, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 8523.49.40 and thus duty-free. The principal suppliers of these products are China, Germany, Japan, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.
