Import tariff

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the September 29, 2010 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that resulted in a significant lowering of the tariff applicable to wafer probe cards. These items had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 8536.90.80 and subject to a 2.7% duty, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 8536.90.40 and thus duty-free. China, Germany, Japan, and Mexico are the principal suppliers of this product.
