Goods and merchandise imported into the United States has to be classified in accordance with the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States ("HTSUS"). Classification determines the admissibility of the goods, the duty rate that will be applied, the applicability of import restrictions and the availability of duty free treatment or reduced duties under special tariff preference programs and Free Trade Agreements.

At NCH Customs Brokers we have in house experts with background in engineering and materials who will work closely with our clients to obtain the proper classification for their products. This will allow our customers to take advantage of the lowest duty rate legally available, and to take advantage of special duty programs such as G.S.P and NAFTA.
