Import tariff

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the September 21, 2016 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that resulted in elimination of the tariff applicable to Galaxolide® mixtures (i.e., certain chemical compounds used in the fragrance industry). The item had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 2932.99.7000 (6.5% duty), but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 3302.90.1050 and thus duty-free. China, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom 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 The final revocation and modification became effective for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after November 21, 2016.
