Title 19, Code of Federal Regulations & Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the U.S.
A Special Printing Price on the HTSUS & 19CFR's
The US Customs Broker Test is an open book test. This exam tests the applicant's knowledge and understanding of US Customs law and regulations as defined in the Code of Federal Regulations and the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States. Both of these publications (19CFR and HTS) are permitted reference material during the examination. They are not included in the price of the Logistics Training Systems Programs. All sales are final and all orders are subject to inventory availability.
We are pleased to announce a spiral bound LARGE PRINT - 8 1/2 x 11" - edition of the 19CFR for the October semester. While the large print is not as easy to handle as the regular - 6 x 9"- version of the 19CFR, it is easier to read. We used to recommend that the large print edition of the 19CFR be added to a 12“ catalog rack along with the HTS. However, both the HTS and the 19CFR have grown over the years, and together they will no longer fit on a 12" Catalog Rack. A large binder for the large print 19CFR is clumsy during the exam, so our solution is the three book spiral bound edition for anyone who might need a larger print edition of the 19CFR.
For the October 2019 Semester Student:
The 2019 HTS will be used for the October 2019 exam.
CBP will use the current 2018 edition of the 19CFR and the new, not yet released, 2019 edition, for the October 23, 2019 exam. It will not matter which one you use. The 2019 19CFR will not be released until late summer of this year. Since both will be used for the October exam, if you are starting your studies now, 2018 edition is the only one available.

The Spiral Bound Edition of the 2018 19CFR
Includes: (6 x 9") Spiral Bound: Parts 1-140, Parts 141-199, Parts 200 to the end
Description: We print these books in a unique spiral binding. The April 2018 edition of the 19CFR, Parts 1-140, 141-199, Parts 200 to the end with no supplements, or what is also called the "hard bound" version, is pictured on the left. This spiral binding makes the books easier to handle when studying, because they lay flat. This same feature also makes them easy to handle during the exam, by eliminating fumbling, as you are looking up an answer and trying to write at the same time! Since they are smaller than the large print they are easy to carry around and sit in your big comfy chair while you are studying. A big advantage!

The Spiral Bound Large Print edition of the 2018 19CFR
Includes: (8.5 x 11") Spiral Bound: Parts 1-140, Parts 141-199, Parts 200 to the end
Description: This is a large print format, spiral bound edition of the April 2018 19CFR edition. This is an exact copy of the "hard bound" static government version. Since CBP is using all three parts of the 19CFR, it will no longer fit on the 12 inch CATALOG RACK with your HTS. Because of the larger print size, this version is much easier to read. This version is printed on a heavy paper, so you can add notes, tab, highlight and underline. It is excellent for someone who has vision issues.

The Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) is the primary resource for determining tariff classifications for goods imported into the United States. The U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule, classifies a good (assigns it a ten-digit tariff classification number) based on such things as its name, use, and/or the material used in its construction. The tariff schedule is divided into Chapters 1 through 99 plus numerous additional sections such as various appendices and indexes. Chapters are divided into a varying number of headings, and headings are divided into a varying number of subheadings. Raw materials or basic substances often appear in the early chapters and in earlier headings within a chapter, where highly processed goods and manufactured articles often appear in later chapters and headings. Agricultural products are generally provided for in chapters 1-24, for example, whereas vehicles, aircraft and vessels appear in chapters 86-89. There is no hard and fast rule, however. Toys, for example, appear in Chapter 95 and works of art are found in Chapter 97. You will need to know all of this for the upcoming exam!
