Background

In the July 7, 2021, Customs Bulletin and Decisions, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is proposing to reclassify a reflective cat collar as an animal harness under HTSUS 4201.00.6000 (2.8 percent duty) rather than as a dog leash under HTSUS 4201.00.3000 (2.4 percent duty). CBP explains that the item is for a cat and is therefore not dog equipment.

Ruling NY 891581 would be revoked to reflect this change. Comments on this proposal are due no later than Aug. 6.

For more information on how to seek or utilize classification and other rulings, please contact attorney Deb Stern at (305) 894-1007 or via email.
