Selecting the correct tariff classification for cross-border products is crucial, not only from the standpoint of determining customs, excise, value-added, or anti-dumping duties and taxes payable upon import or export, but also in determining whether goods are subject to import licensing, quotas, or other requirements, and even eligibility for preferential tariff under Free Trade Agreements (FTAs).
