Import tariff

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the June 8, 2009 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that resulted in a significant increase in the tariff applicable to photosensitive sensors. They had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 8541.40.80 (duty-free), but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 8543.70.96and thus subject to a 2.6% duty. China, Germany, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, and Thailand are the principal suppliers of this product.
