2009 Version of U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule and Schedule B Numbers Now Available
The 2009 version of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTUSA) is now available and can be found here on the U.S. International Trade Commission's website.
Among other things, the 2009 HTSUSA contains the rules of origin for the U.S.-Oman Free Trade Agreement that went into effect on January 1, 2009 and other changes made to the HTSUSA during 2008.
The 2009 version of the Schedule B codes for use in filing Electronic Export Information via the Automated Export System can be found here. AES will accept shipments with outdated 2008 codes during a grace period for 30 days beyond the expiration date of December 31, 2008. Reporting an outdated 2008 code after the 30 day grace period will result in a fatal error.
Current HTSUSA numbers that are invalid for use in AES as of January 1, 2009 can be found here.
Export codes (which the U.S. calls Schedule B) are administered by the U.S. Census Bureau. Import codes are administered by the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC).
