Import tariff

Effective June 29, 2017, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service is collecting higher fees on a wider range of bovine meat. At issue is the Beef Promotion and Research Order, which was first authorised in 1985 and collected in 1986.

This promotional program, which is administered by a Cattlemen's Beef Promotion and Research Board appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture, is funded by a $1-per-head assessment on producers selling cattle in the United States as well as an equivalent assessment on importers of cattle, beef, and beef products.

Importers pay assessments on imported cattle, beef, and beef products that, under this revised order, range in value from 0.379102 to 2.090075 cents per kilogramme. In addition to increasing these rates, the new order adds six item numbers from the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) to the list of goods subject to such assessments; imports of these items were not previously subject to the assessment.

The news rule specifies that imported veal classified under the following HTSUS numbers is subject to the assessments indicated:

  • 1.431558 cents per kilogram for HTSUS numbers 0201.10.0510, 0201.10.1010, 0201.10.5010, 0201.20.5010, 0201.20.5020, 0202.10.0510, 0202.10.1010, and 0202.10.5010; and
  • 2.090075 cents per kilogram for HTSUS numbers 0201.30.5010, 0201.30.5020, 0202.30.5010, and 0202.30.5020.
