Importing 3D Printers Into the U.S.

If you are importing 3-d printers into the United States, you should be aware that they may be subject to specific rules and regulations, such as an FCC certification.

As with most products, the key to importing 3D printers is correctly classifying them according to their Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HS) codes. The HS Code for a product determines its duty rate, applicable free trade agreements, regulations, and more.

Although we have experts with over 100 years of combined customs classification experience on our team, for revolutionary new products like the 3D printer, it is often difficult to be certain that you have selected the correct HS code. We would advise that you check with your customs broker for guidance.

FCC Certification

These products may also require a declaration as to whether the product is a radio frequency device. If the 3D printer has built-in Bluetooth or wireless capabilities, it will be regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and your manufacturer will need to register for an FRN and a grantee code. The product will then need to be tested and certified by an authorized testing facility. However, if the 3D printer does not have radio frequency capabilities, this declaration can be disclaimed and nothing more will be needed. Your customs broker can handle this disclaimer for you.
