  • statistical changes approved by the Committee for Statistical Annotation of the Tariff Schedules (also known as the "484(f) Committee,” which analyzes and evaluates petitions requesting changes in HTS and Schedule B statistical reporting), effective as of January 1, 2017;
  • staged reductions in preferential duty rates applicable under existing (already proclaimed) free trade agreements and effective as of January 1, 2017; and
  • cumulative changes that took effect during calendar year 2016 as reflected in the on-line HTS available on the USITC website (see the Change Record).  Users may download the HTS data in a variety of formats, including comma delimited, Excel spreadsheet, and machine-readable JSON formats.
