Before you can legally import any goods into the United States, the goods must arrive at a port of entry and U.S. Customs must authorize the delivery to their final destination based on the documents you file. In addition to identifying the correct Harmonized System (HS) number for your products, which is used to determine how much duty you must pay for the goods, you need to be aware of other various types of import controls for your products including import licenses and permits, various types of certificates, absolute and tariff rate quotas, and anti-dumping and countervailing duties.


Watch How Import Controls Work

Our Import Controls Wizard helps you determine whether or not any of these additional import controls exist. Just enter your product’s HS number as well as the country of import, country of manufacture, and country of export. The results page will display a list of all potentially applicable import controls for your product.
