Duty-Free Treatment of Certain Visual and Auditory Materials
This document proposes to amend the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations pertaining to the filing of documentation related to free entry of certain merchandise under Chapter 98 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The proposed amendment would permit an applicant to file the documentation required for duty-free treatment of certain visual and auditory materials of an educational, scientific, or cultural character under subheading 9817.00.40, HTSUS, at any time prior to the liquidation of the entry. The regulation currently requires the filing of this documentation within 90 days of the date of entry. The proposed change would provide more time for the importer to provide the necessary certification documentation to CBP and would serve to align the filing of required certification documentation with a change in CBP policy that extended the liquidation cycle for entries in the ordinary course of business from 90 days to 314 days after the date of entry. The change is consistent with other regulations that govern the duty-free treatment of merchandise under Chapter 98, HTSUS.
