  • Declare the name of the goods does not match the declared code

The classification of goods:

  • The classification of "imitation leather" goods made from nonwovens and plastics must be based on the composition of the nonwovens/plastics, the proportions of the nonwovens/ plastics, the method of combination of the components, the role use (surface layer/reinforcement layer) of nonwovens/plastics components, whether the plastic coating is visible to the naked eye, the use of the goods, etc., refer to the provisions of Legal Notes include: Note 1 (h) Part XI, Note 3 Chapter 56, Refer to the Detailed Notes to HS Chapter 39, Detailed Explanatory Note to heading 56.03, the rules of classification are applied to determine the code of goods

  • Some cases should be noted:

Nonwovens, wholly covered with plastics or coated or covered on both sides with plastics, sheets, sheets and strips of cellular plastics combined with nonwovens, of which the nonwovens are merely reinforcing materials then classified in chapter 39

The " imitation leather" is made up of non-woven fabric impregnated, coated, covered or laminated with plastic on one side, not yet specifically described in the headings and related legal notes, detailed notes, It is necessary to consider which ingredients give the product a basic characteristic, then classify according to that ingredient according to rule 3b.

  • In case it is not possible to identify the ingredients giving the basic characteristics to the product, they shall be classified according to rule 3c.
