From Global Reach – Export Classification Codes Part 1: Mixtures
With mixtures, kits, and parts, correctly classifying products can be especially tricky.
TheGeneral Rules of Interpretation (GRI)are a standard set of rules that helps exporters determine the correct classification for products. It provides international guidance on how to classify mixtures and kits and the <Additional U.S. Rule> provides guidance on classifying parts in the U.S.
According toGRI 2B,mixtures and combinations are classified based on the essential character unless the mixture is specifically referenced. A product’s essential character can be thought of as what it is, what it does and what it’s made of.
The interactiveSchedule B Search Enginetakes into account these and the other General Rules of Interpretation to provide export classification codes.
