USDA Proposes to Update Assessments on Imported Veal
The Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service is accepting comments through Oct. 24 on a proposed rule that would amend the Beef Promotion and Research Order to increase assessment levels for imported veal and veal products based on revised determinations of live animal equivalencies. This rule would also add six HTSUS numbers to the list of those subject to such assessments to capture product that is not currently being assessed.
Specifically, this rule would specify that imported veal classified under the following HTSUS numbers is subject to the assessments indicated.
- $0.01431558 per kg for HTSUS numbers 0201.10.0510, 0201.10.1010, 0201.10.5010, 0201.20.5010, 0201.20.5020, 0202.10.0510, 0202.10.1010 and 0202.10.5010
- $0.01889657 for HTSUS numbers 0201.30.5010, 0201.30.5020, 0202.30.5010 and 0202.30.5020
