Argentina Amends Criterion Values for Keyboards and Mice
Argentina has modified the reference/criterion values for keyboards, mice and trackballs classified under NCM 8471.60.52 and 8471.60.53 from mainland China, Hong Kong, North Korea, South Korea, the Philippines, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. The new values are US$8.50 per unit for wireless keyboards classified under NCM 8471.60.52; US$5.20 per unit for non-wireless keyboards classified under NCM 8471.60.52; US$4.40 per unit for wireless mice, trackballs and other pointers/indicators classified under NCM 8471.60.53; and US$3.00 per unit for non-wireless mice, trackballs and other pointers/indicators classified under NCM 8471.60.53. If such goods have declared values lower than the modified criterion values, which are purportedly aimed at preventing the under-invoicing of imports, the importer must pay a guarantee equivalent to the difference in duties on the declared value and the criterion value.
