No proposals for changes to the national-level provisions (which include U.S. 8-digit subheadings, statistical annotations and rates of duty) will be considered by the Commission as a part of this review. Interested parties, associations and government agencies should submit specific language for proposed amendments to the Harmonized System together with appropriate descriptive comments and, to the extent available, trade data. As part of this review, the Commission particularly invites proposals concerning the following matters: • The deletion of HS headings or subheadings with low trade volume, • The identification of new products important in international trade, • The simplification of the HS, e.g., by the elimination of classification provisions which are difficult to administer. As mentioned above, no proposals for changes to the Explanatory Notes or national-level provisions (including Additional U.S. Notes, U.S. 8-digit subheadings, statistical annotations and rates of duty) will be considered by the Commission as a part of this review. The changes in the international HS that will result from this review cycle will not necessarily affect tariff rates for products imported into the United States; as with the first three HS review cycles, the USITC plans to eventually develop a set of proposed HTS changes that will align the HTS on the international HS changes, pursuant to sec. 1205 of the 1988 Act. This Notice is not soliciting proposals for changes to the HS Explanatory Notes. However, requests for changes to the existing Explanatory Notes (not arising from changes in the HS itself) may be sent by a government directly to the Harmonized System Committee (the parent committee to the RSC) at any time; government and private sector parties interested in such action internationally should separately contact the above-mentioned parties at the USITC or the following at the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection: Myles Harmon, Director, Commercial Rulings Division, 202–572– 8860 or Gail Hamil, Director, International Nomenclature Staff, 202– 572–8813.
