After considering numerous responses to its proposal, CBP determined that ISO would be used to assess the characteristics of textile material attached to outer soles. Previous rulings issued on this issue have been superseded by Note 5, and CBP has the responsibility of administering this new standard.
On November 13,U. Under the test, CBP explains that — The protocol for ISO tests the performance of footwear outer soles by taking three samples from the subject outer sole and subjecting their surface areas to the specified abrading machine. Subsequently, the International Trade Commission proposed a new rule consistent with the International Harmonized System, and the changes were adopted by Presidential Proclamation in Octoberwith the insertion of Additional Note 5 to Chapter Tuttle in San Francisco.
The performance standards consist of various figures of mass lost due to the ISO test and depend on the type of footwear being tested, ranging from general purpose sports footwear to infant footwear to fashion footwear. The protocol for ISO tests the performance of footwear outer soles by taking three samples from the subject outer sole and subjecting their surface areas to the specified abrading machine.

The application and implementation of this rule can have a significant impact on the tariff classification and amount of duty footwear importers will be required to pay. Under the test, CBP explains that —. The samples are weighed before and after subjecting them to the abrasion testing. Moreover, ISO permits the application of a single test to textile material added to all types of outer soles, not merely to rubber.
Concern over the application of this rule arose, as some observers believed that the application of a textile material over the otherwise rubber material on the outer sole was evasive, as the textile material did not serve a functional purpose vis a vis the footwear.
Footwear is generally classifiable according to the material of both the upper i. Thus, if the constituent material of the outer sole that has the greatest surface area in contact with the ground is a textile, then it may have a significantly lower tariff rate than footwear that has rubber as its controlling constituent material.
As this testing procedure unfolds, there will very likely be a number of issues that will still need to be resolved. Adoption of the Final Rule.

Background Footwear is generally lso according to the material of both the upper i. Note 4 b to Chapter 64, HTSUS, which covers footwear, provides that the constituent material of the outer sole shall be taken to be the material having the greatest surface area in contact with the ground.
For the purposes of determining the constituent material of the outer sole pursuant to Note 20781 b to this Chapter, no account shall be taken of textile materials which do not possess the characteristics usually required for normal use of an outer sole, including durability and strength.
Adoption of the Final Rule After considering numerous responses to its proposal, CBP determined that ISO would be used ido assess the characteristics of textile material attached to outer soles.
