Import tariff

On 28 April 2021, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a ruling relating to the tariff classification of “date juice concentrate” or “date syrup”. With the ruling, CBP has reclassified date juice concentrate or date syrup as glucose and glucose syrup under HTSUS 1702.40.4000 rather than as fruit juices under HTSUS 2009.89.7091. With the new classification, the import tariff of the subject product has changed from 0.5 cents/liter duty to 5.1 percent duty. CBP explains that the content of this product is consistent with the classification under HTSUS 1702.40. Ruling NY N307283 would be revoked to reflect this change.

This ruling will become effective on or after June 27, 2021.
