Import tariff

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 certain footwear. Men's open toe/heel flip-flop thong sandals with rubber or plastic outer soles as men's footwear with uppers of more than 50 percent leather had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 6404.19.3940 (37.5% duty), but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 6404.19.1520 and thus subject to a 10.5% duty. China and Vietnam 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 The final revocation and modification became effective for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 21, 2016.
