Update on Multiple HTS Filing Procedures in ACE

October 23, 2018

In CSMS# 18-000624, dated October 20, 2018, CBP issued updated instructions for entry summary order of reporting for multiple HTS classifications in ACE. This concerns filing for merchandise under Chapters 98 and/or 99.

Under the updated procedures the HTS sequence is as follows:

  1. Chapter 98 (if applicable)
  2. Chapter 99 number(s) for additional duties
  3. For trade remedies,
    1. First report the Chapter 99 HTS for Section 301,
    2. Followed by the Chapter 99 HTS for Section 232 or 201 duties (if applicable)
    3. Followed by the Chapter 99 HTS for Section 201 or 232 quota (if applicable).
  4. Chapter 99 number(s) for replacement duty or other use (i.e., MTB or other provisions)
  5. Chapter 99 number for other quota (not covered by #3 above) (if applicable)
  6. Chapter 1 to 97 Commodity Tariff

The entered value for the imported merchandise should be reported on the Chapter 1-97 HTS classification. The exception to this is for Chapter 98 reporting provisions that require the entered value be reported differently.
