Shipping to the USA

Postby Zac Gibson » Sat Sep 08, 2012 1:18 pm

Hi guys anyone any good with shipping stuff to the US? I am sending my housing back to get a new port fitted and need to know what customs forms etc i need to fill out.

Anyone have any ideas?

Couple of googled bits...

But I think that only applies if the item was made in the USA to begin with...


US origin goods previously exported and than re-imported for repair.
Parts produced in the United States that are being imported into the US for repair fall under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule # 9801.00.1012. Terms outlined in the HTS US:
a) These goods should be of the U.S. origin.
b) The goods can not be advanced in value or improved in condition by any process of manufacture or other means while abroad.


From a company directive blurb... http://www.intermec.com/about_us/suppli ... tation.pdf

Does that help? I feel I should know more having done export for 4 years :(

So i found this n the royal mail website

Reckon i should just fill out the CN23 form and put that n the side of the box and stipulate it is returned goods for new parts to be fit?

TBH. I haven't got a clue. Sorry.

Here's a better description of what you may need to do.

I reckon you could probably fit the info US customs will need to clear it on that CN22 or 23. Seems that HTS number is pretty important if its classified as a commercial shipment. And only if it was originally made in the US... ?

What do the repair place have to say about it?

harmonsed tariff will be important to ship to and receive back from the US, make sure it is clear on the form what tariff code you are using. If it is going for repair and return to the same customer and being repaired in the country of origin then you should not have to pay if my memory serves me right from shipping in oil and gas but I could be wrong....

Sections 8.1 and 8.2 seem to cover it http://customs.hmrc.gov.uk/channelsPort ... P483_77473

There's also a Helpline number at the bottom of the notice - they may be able to give you advice on the procedure.

The online version of the tariff is on the EU website I think. It's a bit opaque but you'll get the hang of it soon enough (it's worth double checking a couple of categories as the duty is sometimes different)
