The rate of duty will be 4.4 cents per kilogram. If the quantitative limits of additional U.S. note 3 to chapter 2 have been reached, the product will be classified in subheading 0202.30.8000, HTS, and will be dutiable at 30.3 percent ad valorem. In addition, products classified in subheading 0202.30.8000, HTS, will be subject to additional duties based on their value, as described in subheadings 9904.02.01 - 9904.02.37, HTS.
