Classification of Merchandise
The classification of commodities imported into the United States is complex. Pursuant to the Customs Modernization Act, it is responsibility of the importers to use “reasonable care” to “classify” imported goods and provide sufficient information to assist Customs and Border Protection in assessing duties, collecting accurate statistics, and determining if applicable legal requirements are met. Correctly classifying goods is important not only for duty purposes, but also to determine whether the goods are subject to quotas, restraints, embargoes or other restrictions.
