Tariff Classification Services

PDF Print E-mail

Joseph Smith Company has helped many importers develop and maintain tariff classification compliance programs.

We will analyze your parts catalog and help you determine the correct tariff classification code for each and every product.  We have performed tariff classification assistance for many importers, from small importers with a few products to Fortune 500 companies with many thousands.  We can also assist you in obtaining formal U.S. Customs Binding Rulings for these parts. 

Joseph Smith Company has the qualifications and experience to accurately classify all of your products. We can also determine proper OGA classifications (such as FDA product codes) and determine if your products qualify for any of the many money-saving US Customs Preferential Duty programs. 

By combing this service with our SMITH Classification System (an automated process which loads the correct classifications directly into the electronic application for customs clearance), you can be assured that your imports will always be fully Customs-compliant.

Joseph Smith Company offers a full range of import and export services. Call us toll-free at 888-4-JSMITH (888-457-6484) to see how we can put our experience to work for you.
