Plants and Plant Products

 

Plants and plant products found on the “Schedule of Enforcement” must submit a Lacey Act Plant and Plant Product Declaration Form upon importation into the United States. Declarations are only required for Formal Customs Entries. Law is implemented based on Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) categories

Potentially affected Avery Dennison materials:

  • Ch. 48 headings (paper & articles of), which includes uncoated paper and board, composite paper and board, corrugated paper and board, carbon paper, coated paper and board, and others
  • Ch. 44 headings (wood & article of), which includes packing cases, boxes, crates, and other

Requirements are already enforced for other categories of materials not likely to be relevant to Avery Dennison

  • Various forms of wood and wood articles

 

There is an exemption for plants and plant products used exclusively as packing material to support, protect, or carry another item including (but not limited to) instruction manuals, labels, pallets and crating, etc.
