This course is for Customs Brokers and Importers filing entries for Solar Cells and Large Residential Washing Machines under Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974. It addresses practical operational issues such as the list of affected products, the applicable HTSUS Chapter 99 tariff numbers, the consequences of failure to add the additional tariff line item and duty when applicable, importer bond sufficiency, and where to obtain additional information as further developments arise.
Admissibility issues are a concern. Some of these take the form of country based embargos, sanctions and controls. They are administered by different agencies for political, economic, moral, or environmental reasons.
In this lesson we review the use of Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974 as a control mechanism to safeguard against articles imported in such increased quantities that they are a substantial cause of serious injury, or threat thereof, to the U.S. industry producing an article like or directly competitive with the imported articles. We will also provide links to the current Section 201 sanctions in place and provide the information for processing these shipments, as well as higher level recommendations for handling this type of transaction.
