U.S. Customs and Border Protection published a classification ruling in the June 1, 2016 edition of the Customs Bulletin and Decisions by which it proposes that spare parts kits used to repair or maintain mold machines do not constitute a retail set. The impact of this reclassification is mixed: The individual components of these kits would be classified separately, with duty rates of 1.8-5.8%, rather than the kit as a whole being classified as parts of injection molding machines under HTSUS 8477.90.8501 (and hence subject to a 3.1% duty, meaning that some tariffs decline and others rise. Comments on this modification are due no later than July 1, and the final revocations and modifications will be effective for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after August 1. Canada, China, Germany, and Japan are the principal suppliers of this product.
