Court of International Trade Notice: Classification of Imported Notebooks with Calendars

In this case, Blue Sky the Color of Imagination, LLC challenged the classification of certain paper products by the United States Customs and Border Protection (Customs). ​ The issue at hand was whether the products should be classified as calendars or as other paper products. ​ The court concluded that neither classification was correct and determined that the paper products were diaries. ​ The court relied on the General Rules of Interpretation (GRIs) and the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) to make its determination. ​ The court found that the subject merchandise, which consisted of notebooks with calendar pages and space for writing notes, met the definition of diaries. ​ The court also considered the Explanatory Notes (ENs) associated with the HTSUS, which clarified that the subject merchandise should be classified as diaries. ​ The court rejected Customs' classification of the products as "other" paper products and instead classified them as diaries under subheading 4820.10.20.10 of the HTSUS. ​
