U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced several reclassification rulings in the December 23, 2015 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that took effect on February 22, 2016. One of those reclassifications will result in a significant increase of the tariff applicable to double-walled beverage bottles. At issue are the classification and the applicable tariff for stainless steel, double-walled beverage bottles as vacuum flasks and other vacuum vessels. These items had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 7323.93.0080 and subject to a 2% duty, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 9617.00.10 and pay instead a 7.2% duty. China is the principal supplier of this product.
