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 flavored barbecue wood chips containing a mixture of wood shavings and a mixture of herbs and spices in a gelatin base. These items had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 4421.90.9040 and subject to a 5.1% duty, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 4401.39.40 and thus duty-free. Canada is the principal supplier of this product.
