Happy New Year…It’s that time of year again. The 2022 Preliminary Edition of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule has been published and there will be more changes later in January. Best practices in compliance include reviewing your parts lists to make sure you are using accurate and up to date HTS codes.
Why not take it one step further and develop a parts matrix listing descriptions, HTS codes, Schedule B codes, ECCN, License info, Country of Origin, and any other relevant import/export data? Your matrix will enable you to document new parts additions and changes as they occur. All departments involved in trade will be working with the same information so errors and omissions will be reduced.
