Under the test, CBP explains that —. 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.

Results of the test are expressed generally in terms of relative mass loss. As this testing procedure kso, there will very likely be a number of issues that will still need to be resolved. Previous rulings issued on this issue have been superseded by Note 5, and CBP has the responsibility of administering this new standard. 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 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.
Background Footwear is generally classifiable according to the material of both the upper i.
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 208771 areas to the specified abrading machine. The samples are weighed before and after subjecting them to the abrasion testing.
Tuttle, III at george. 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.
Note 4 b to Chapter 64, HTSUS, which covers 208771, 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.
