Tariff Schedules

IDFA has compiled the tariff schedules for the top ten US dairy export destinations, as well as the tariff schedule for the European Union (EU). Tariff schedules show what tariff will be applied to a specific product being exported to a certain country. To use a tariff schedule, you typically need two pieces of information: the country from which you are exporting the product and the H.S. code for your product. For almost any member of IDFA, the country of origin is the United States. As for the H.S. code, it is a series of numbers that designates a specific product. While there is some similarity between countries for the H.S. code of a product, it is important to verify you have the H.S. code for the country to which you wish to export. Additionally, the US is a member of the World Trade Organization, so tariffs that say they apply to WTO or MFN (Most-favored Nation), apply to the US.

In the below list, countries designated with an asterisk (*) hold a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States. For these countries, you can visit https://2016.export.gov/fta/ftatarifftool/TariffSearch.aspx to find the tariff for the specific product you are exporting. For example, many products exporting to Mexico have a much lower tariff than is listed on their schedule because of NAFTA.

Additionally, you can sign up with just an email at http://export.customsinfo.com/Default.aspx to access “Tariff information for shipments that originate and ship from any country to any country in the CUSTOMS Info Global Tariff database.” You can also find data on all WTO-member countries at http://tariffdata.wto.org/ReportersAndProducts.aspx.
