United States Tariff Schedule General Notes

Annex 3.3-US Notes-1

GENERAL NOTES

TARIFF SCHEDULE OF THE UNITED STATES

 

1. The provisions of this Schedule are generally expressed in terms of the HTSUS, and the

interpretation of the provisions of this Schedule, including the product coverage of tariff items of

this Schedule, shall be governed by the General Notes, Section Notes, and Chapter Notes of the

HTSUS.  To the extent that provisions of this Schedule are identical to the corresponding

provisions of the HTSUS, the provisions of this Schedule shall have the same meaning as the

corresponding provisions of the HTSUS.   

 

2. The base rates of duty set out in this Schedule reflect the HTSUS Column 1 General rates

of duty in effect January 10, 2003.

 

3. In addition to the staging categories listed in Annex 3.3, paragraph 1, this Schedule

contains staging categories I, J, K, and L.

 

(a) Duties on originating goods provided for in the items in staging category I shall be

removed in the following manner:  the base rate of duty shall reflect the HTSUS Column

1 Special Rates of Duty designated under the Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act

(“R”), in effect January 1, 2005.  On the date this Agreement enters into force, duties

shall be reduced by two percent, and by an additional two percent on January 1 of year

two. On January 1 of year three, duties shall be reduced by an additional eight percent of

the base rate, and by an additional eight percent of the base rate each year thereafter

through year six. On January 1 of year seven, duties shall be reduced by an additional 16

percent of the base rate, and by an additional 16 percent of the base rate each year

thereafter, and such goods shall be duty-free effective January 1 of year ten.

 

(b) Duties on originating goods provided for in the items in staging category J shall be

removed immediately in accordance with existing WTO duty-elimination commitments

(WTO Schedule XX for the United States).

 

(c) Duties on originating goods provided for in the items in staging category K shall be

eliminated entirely and such goods shall be duty-free on the date this Agreement enters

into force.  For goods in tariff items 98120020, 98120040, 98130005, 98130010,

98130015, 98130020, 98130025, 98130030, 98130035, 98130040, 98130045, 98130050,

98130055, 98130060, 98130070, 98130075, and 98140050 duty-free means free without

bond.

 

(d) Duties on originating goods provided for in the items in staging category L shall be

subject to the following provision during the tariff elimination period until January 1 of

year ten, at which time such goods shall be duty-free.  For originating goods described in

tariff item 9802.00.60, at the time of entry of the good, the rate of duty imposed upon the

value of the processing outside the United States to be applied in accordance with the

procedures specified in U.S. note 3 of subchapter II, chapter 98 of the HTS, shall be the

rate of duty that would apply to the good itself under the staging obligations set out for

the appropriate provision in Chapters 1 to 97 of this schedule.

Annex 3.3-US Notes-2

 

4. During the transition period, only a qualifying good is eligible for the in-quota tariff rate

for each such good specified in Appendix I; originating goods that are not qualifying goods shall

be subject to the over-quota tariff rate for the good specified in Appendix I.  For purposes of this

note, “qualifying good” means a good that satisfies the requirements of Chapter Four (Rules of

Origin and Origin Procedures), except that operations performed in or material obtained from the

United States shall be considered as if the operations were performed in a non-Party and the

material was obtained from a non-Party.  For purposes of determining which country-specific

tariff-rate quota applies to a qualifying good, the United States shall apply the non-preferential

rules of origin that it applies in the normal course of trade.

 

5. Originating goods imported into the United States shall not be subject to any duties

applied pursuant to Article 5 of the WTO Agreement on Agriculture.
