Day 1 - Harmonized Tariff Schedule and Schedule B
Day one of seminar will help better understand, through simple examples and workshops, the rules that are required to classify products in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) or Schedule B.

- History and Legal Text of the HTS

- Differences between HTS and Schedule B
- General Rules of Interpretation
- Additional U.S. Rule of Interpretation
- General Notes (summary of trade agreements and more)
- Classification Rulings
- Workshops (covering numerous products)
Day 2 - Import Documentation and Procedures
The second part of this seminar will provide an overview of the import documentation and procedures, U. S. customs and border protection organization, entry process, post entry procedures and trade regulations.
The Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) is used by over 200 countries, territories, or customs unions around the world to assign a number to each product to establish the appropriate duty that should be paid when goods are imported into a country. The HTS is also used to determine whether goods are subject to quotas and free trade agreements. Proper classification is vital for establishing eligibility under many free trade agreements, i.e. completion of the NAFTA Certificate of Origin for trade between U.S., Canada, and Mexico as well as trade agreements between the U.S. and Chile, Singapore, Australia, the Central America-Dominican Republic, Bahrain, Oman, Peru, S. Korea, Colombia, and Panama.
The Schedule B is unique to the United States and is used for reporting a number to the U.S. Census for exports from the United States to other countries.
