Import tariff

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the August 24, 2016 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that resulted in a decrease in the tariff applicable to jewelry charms containing cubic zirconia stones. The item had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 7117.19.9000 (11% duty), but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 7116.20.0580 and thus subject to a 3.3% duty. China is the principal supplier of this product. The final revocation and modification became effective for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after October 24, 2016.
