Another Opportunity for Duty-Free or Reduced Duties on Imports



The Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) Act eliminates or reduces import duties of certain raw materials and intermediate products used in manufacturing which are either not produced in, or available, domestically. It is a temporary reduction with the purpose of ensuring US manufacturers are not at a disadvantage compared to their foreign competitors when sourcing manufacturing components.


The MTB Petition System (MTBPS) will open for petition submissions at 8:45 a.m. ET on October 11, 2019. Through this portal, US importers may file for duty-free or reduced duty treatment of select imported products.


The US International Trade Commission (USITC) is offering a seminar on the MTB petition process and web-based filing portal, which may also be attended virtually. Registration is required for the webinar, however no registration is required for in person attendance.


WHEN: Wednesday, October 9, 2019, 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
