Question: Where is your tCheck 2 device made? I am trying to calculate the duty fees/taxes.
Answer: The tCheck 2 device and all the component items are manufactured in the United States and will ship from our Northern California location in the USA.
On the customs declaration form, the item is listed as "spectrometer" commodity code 902730.
Harmonization Code (HS/HTS) .......902730
Product Description ............................Spectrometer
Orders are shipped with this information either on a commercial invoice or on the label/declaration form - this depends on the shipper.
All orders contain an invoice on the inside of the box. If your customs department opens the item they will see the cost of the item in USD. We can not alter this value.
Customs fees and duty taxes are your responsibility and are not included in the shipping costs.
About Customs, Duties & Taxes
- When ordering, you’re responsible for assuring the product can be lawfully imported to the destination.
- The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination. Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties, and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient’s country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient; we have no control over these charges, nor can we predict what they may be.
- Customs policies vary widely; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
