Revisions to the 2011 Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the U.S. (HTSUS)
Changes to the HTSUS have been posted to the International Trade Commission’s (ITC) website and will become effective July 1, 2011.
Statistical changes (9th and 10th digits) have been made to HTS numbers in the following chapters: 8, 17, 20, 39, 48, 72, 94 and 95.
Two chapter notes have been added: U.S. Note 2(c) to Chapter 98, Subchapter XXII regarding certain apparel articles under the Singapore Free Trade Agreement (SFTA) and U.S. Note 3(e) to Chapter 99, Subchapter I regarding tariff treatment for ethyl alcohol from Peru.
Some HTS numbers in heading 9903 have been deleted due to the termination of 100% duty rates imposed in response to the European Union – United Stated beef hormones dispute.
We advise that you review the Change Record posted on ITC’s website.
