Abstract: U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is responsible for determining whether imported articles that are classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 9801.00.10, 9802.00.20, 9802.00.25, 9802.00.40, 9802.00.50, and 9802.00.60 are entitled to duty-free or reduced duty treatment. In order to file under these HTSUS provisions, importers, or their agents, must have the declarations that are provided for in 19 CFR 10.1(a), 10.8(a), and 10.9(a) in their possession at the time of entry and submit them to CBP upon request.

CBP proposes to add the declaration filed under HTSUS 9817.00.40 in accordance with 19 CFR 10.121 to this information collection.
