About The Webinar

Hundreds of new HTSUS amendments will go into effect Jan. 1, 2022 (or thereabouts) as a result of World Customs Organization updates to the international Harmonized System. The HTSUS will have new or revised provisions on goods such as flat-panel displays, 3-D printers, drones, electric vehicles, e-cigarettes and vaporizers, edible insect products, olive oil, cell therapy products, rapid diagnostic test kits, placebos and double-blinded clinical trial kits, men’s shirts, textile fabrics laminated with plastics, electronic waste and other hazardous waste, double-walled stainless steel bottles, and bedding. Some changes will be substantive, while others may only be numerical. This 90-minute webinar will review how these changes will impact current classifications and rulings, help importers ensure they are exercising reasonable care, and identify any opportunities for new cost savings.
