Pharmaceutical and Chemical Classification under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule

15 January 2015, Palo Alto, United States

This course will aid participants in minimizing errors in pharmaceutical and chemical classification under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS). It will help better protect your company during import/export audits from the government. Participants will also learn how to take reasonable care as an importer and become aware of best practices and red flags in the area of classification for imports into the United States.

Why Should You Attend:
The Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) is used by over 200 countries, territories, or customs unions around the world to assign a number to each product to establish the appropriate duty that should be paid when goods are imported into a country.
Apart from pharmaceutical and chemical classification under the HTS, one of the primary objectives of the course is to offer guidance on how to exercise due diligence as a U.S. exporter in reporting the proper harmonized number in the Automated Export System. The webinar will also assist companies who are eligible for free trade agreements, ex. NAFTA, and other agreements, in accurately completing Certificates of Origin.
