Classification: Footwear and Accessories


Understanding how to interpret the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the U.S. is essential in determining duty rates, preference eligibility, and overall costs for imported goods. Moreover, importers have a legal obligation to exercise reasonable care in classifying their goods. Whether you are a novice or veteran classifier, an in-house customs compliance professional or a customs broker, our 2016 topic-based classification series can help you improve your classification skills and avoid common pitfalls in these areas, and learn some best practices. 

This month’s topic is footwear, accessories and bags. The footwear provisions are among the most challenging in the HTSUS and carry some of the highest duty rates. Classifying handbags and other accessories can be just as difficult and costly. This 90-minute webinar will provide answers to common classification quandaries that arise with these types of goods, including the following.

Key Topics

• footwear upper material (ESAU) vs. accessories or reinforcements

• rubber/plastic vs. textile outer soles

• foxing and foxing-like bands

• hair accessories vs. jewelry vs. festive articles

• handbags vs. tote bags

• outer surface material of bags

*While the webinar is focused on U.S. standards it will also touch on a recent case in the EU that could mean refunds for certain EU imports.*
