Worth 19 CCS CEUs, this the fifth of the six-part series of introductory courses in the practical work of U.S. customs brokerage work groups, and should be taken after completion of Intro to U.S. Customs Brokerage, Part 4, for proper continuity. (See the syllabus for Part 4 for more information). This course begins with the basic structure of the tariff and why it is important to use the right classification. Next, we talk about the way the tariff is written and the rules for interpretation. Finally, we address the special provisions in Chapters 98 and 99, conditionally free and reduced duties and special treatment, rates of duty and how to calculate it. This is in the context of the most basic classification for a terminal operator who uses a database to determine classification. If there is a question on which classification in the database to use, they will know how to look it up and have a basic understanding of why it is classified there. This course also addresses what to look for when deciding if special treatment is in order. Computation of duty is also included because it may be necessary for calculation of bond amounts or to determine if shipments exceed credit limits. Important: If more than a basic understanding is needed, or a refresher for a classifier is required for importing into the United States, please look over course C6uU.S. Customs Tariff (HTSUS) Classification Basics. Even more in depth for import or export, with several case studies, is C5Harmonized Tariff Classification (2007 HTS). Note: The actual processing of a customs entry is covered in Part 6 of this introductory course series. For more information, click here.
