U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the January 20, 2016 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that resulted in elimination of the tariff applicable to aluminum composite sheets. Painted aluminum composite sheets consisting of one polyethylene layer bonded between two aluminum sheets and having peelable plastic protective film on both sides had previously been classified under HTSUS subheadings 7606.11.3060 (3.0% duty), 7607.19.3000 (5.7% duty) or 7607.19.6000 (3.0% duty), but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 7607.20.50 and thus duty-free. Austria, Canada, China, and France are the principal suppliers of this product. The final revocation and modification became effective for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 21, 2016.
