Workshop Overview



Please note: Certificates of participation are issued for all workshops. The above topics,

speakers and information may be applicable toward continuing education units through various

professional certification programs. Please check with your program administrator for



All goods and materials presented for entry into the Customs Territory of the United States must

be classified (i.e., categorized according to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of The United

States (HTSUS). The process of determining a good's or material's proper placement within the

HTSUS nomenclature is called classification. Classification determines not only how much duty

will be collected by Customs and Border Protection (CBP), but may also dictate the Rules Of

Origin for duty preference programs eligibility such as NAFTA and GSP. Proper classification

involves more than simply looking up an item in an index. Accurate classification involves a

complicated process of applying the HTS, General Rules of Interpretation, the Legal Notes and

additional Explanatory Notes.

For Exporters references to determine Schedule B numbers are very limited, however, the same

tools and methodology used for classification of imports are very helpful in determining HTSUS /

Schedule B for outbound shipments.

This two-day workshop will expose participants to the classification process through an

examination of:

* The structure of the HTSUS

* The Legal Text of the Harmonized System

* Heading and Subheading provisions

* Section, Chapter, Additional U.S., Statistical and Subheading Notes

* The General Rules of Interpretation (GRI's)

* The Classification of Sets

* Provisions for parts and accessories

* Classification strategies

* The Explanatory Notes

* HTSUS / AES list for Exporters

The workshop will be interactive. Key concepts will be supported with numerous examples and

participants will be presented with hands-on classification exercises.
