Classification of Foods and Beverages
Webinar: 1.5 CCS Credit
Edible items present a number of classification challenges. Issues such as the difference between milk protein concentrates and milk solids, the operations that make a fruit or a fish “otherwise prepared or preserved,” the impact of sugar content and quota restrictions on pastries, and how to classify snack mixes can be difficult to resolve, particularly if the classifier doesn’t know the right questions to ask. This webinar will review the food and beverage provisions of the HTSUS, with a focus on some of the more difficult classification questions and some practical guidance for food and beverage importers.
- How to interpret quota provisions
- Dietary supplements
- Definitions for “prepared” and “preserved”
- Scope of heading 2106
- Classification impact on origin and preference claims
Note: * Although the program is appropriate for novice classifiers, we recommend that you complete Classification: 101 before attending this webinar; please click here for more information.
