Harmonized Tariff Update – Effective July 1, 2010

US Customs has made available the Harmonized System Update (HSU) 1003, which was created on July 6, 2010.  The modified records are currently available to all Automated Broker Interface (ABI) participants and can be retrieved electronically via the procedures indicated in the Customs and Trade Automated Interface Requirements (CATAIR).  For ABI users that utilize a SaaS, or hosted ABI solution, this update should have already been implemented automatically.

The update contains the following:

  • 303 ABI records and 66 harmonized tariff records
  • Adjustments made as a result of the 484(f) Committee for Statistical Annotation of Tariff Schedules
  • Modifications made due to Presidential Proclamation 8539, To Modify Duty-Free Treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences
  • Adjustments required by the verification of the 2010 Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS)

These changes became effective on July 1, 2010.
