5 Year HTS Update To Go Into Effect January 27, 2022


The December 28th Federal Register Notice implemented the Presidential Proclamation modifying the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS). The HTS updates are to go into effect for all entries into the U.S. on or after January 27, 2022.

These modifications are based on the World Customs Organization’s 2022 Harmonized System Tariff nomenclature and include over 1500 new headings and subheadings across the 97 chapters of the HTS. A majority of the modifications include certain Articles of Wood in Chapter 44,  Woven Garments of Chapter 62, and Mechanical and Electrical Machinery and Equipment of Chapters 84 and 85. Updates to Chapter 98 were included to make necessary updates to Special Classification Provisions, and Chapter 99 for Temporary Legislation, including the Section 301 tariffs.
