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 lowering of the tariff applicable to flocked heat transfers. At issue are the classification and the applicable tariff for flocked heat transfers and textile/PVC material designed for transferring images to fabric or other surfaces as other transfers (decalcomanias). These items had previously been classified under either HTSUS subheading 5601.30.00 and subject to a 0.5% duty, or under HTSUS subheading 5903.10.2500 and subject to an 8% duty, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 4908.90.00 and thus become duty-free. Japan and the Netherlands are the principal suppliers of this product.
