U.S. Customs and Border Protection has reclassified two styles of walking poles as walking sticks under HTSUS 6602.00.00 (4 percent duty) rather than as articles for physical exercise under HTSUS 9506.99.6080 (4 percent duty). CBP explains that the common commercial meaning of the term “walking sticks” includes walking poles.

Ruling HQ H262581 will revoke rulings NY N016801 and NY N010380 to reflect this change, effective for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Dec. 27.
