Read Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Structure of the HTS
  • Definition of Common Terms
  • General Rules of Interpretation 1 through 6 and Additional U.S. Notes
  • Section, Chapter, and Explanatory Notes
  • Examples of the Rules Pertaining to Pharmaceuticals and Chemicals
  • Pharmaceutical Agreement
  • Pharmaceutical Appendix
  • Chemical Appendix
  • Classification Rulings and Penalties
  • Resources

Who Will Benefit:

Employees from pharmaceutical and chemical companies around the world that specialize in manufacturing and import/export of those products would benefit from this program. This includes:

  • Importers and exporters
  • Manufacturers
  • Chemists
  • Freight forwarders/customhouse brokers
  • Consultants
  • Attorneys
  • Compliance personnel classifying pharmaceuticals in Chapter 30 and chemicals in Chapter 29 of the HTS and qualifying goods under free trade agreements

Topic Background:

The HTS number is "harmonized" to the first six digits. Each contracting party to the HTS is required to apply the General Rules of Interpretation and all section, chapter and subheading notes without modification. The HTS is also used to determine whether goods are subject to "other agency requirements," quotas, or free trade agreements. Proper classification is also vital for establishing eligibility under many free trade agreements, i.e. completion of the NAFTA Certificate of Origin for trade between U.S., Canada, and Mexico as well as trade agreements between the U.S. and Chile, Singapore, Australia, Central America-Dominican Republic, Peru, Korea, Colombia, and Panama.
