ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
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 increase of the tariff applicable to shower escutcheons. At issue are the classification and the applicable tariff for chrome-plated steel escutcheons used to cover the hole on the bathroom shower wall where the shower arm projects. These items had previously been classified previously classified as iron or steel sanitary ware and parts thereof and were duty-free, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 7326.90.85 and thus subject to a 2.9% tariff. The principal suppliers of these products are Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Mexico.
