If you are in the neighborhood January 17th, the Illinois SBDC International Trade Center, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, is putting on a training seminar on Schedule B / HTS Classification. Learn how to begin the process and keep your company in compliance.
This program will help you understand how to use the Harmonized Tariff System for imports and the Schedule B listing for exports. You will learn and review the 6 GRI- General Rules of Interpretation used to classify every product. You will go through instructor & CBP based sample classifications using each of the GRI's. By using the CROSS system we will show how CBP reviews binding ruling requests and what that means for your products. After the training you will know where to go for help and what to look at when beginning to look at your own products. Many companies are exposing themselves unnecessarily by not regularly reviewing or understanding their own classifications. Importers and exporters are required to use reasonable care and due diligence in determining accurate classifications.
