  Electronic Ruling (eRuling) Template
Welcome to the latest version of the Electronic Ruling (eRuling) Template, which allows you to transmit an electronic binding ruling request directly to the National Commodity Specialist Division (NCSD) in New York.  In an effort to assist you in providing all the necessary information pertaining to your specific ruling request (e.g. Classification, Marking, Origin, Trade Agreements) please read, the Requirements for Electronic Ruling (eRuling) Requests, including the Information Required in Ruling Requests section, before proceeding.  Provide all the required information on the template and any accompanying attachments.  Please select the appropriate box for the type of ruling you are requesting.   You may select more than one box if your request involves multiple issues.

You must have access to any files you intend to attach prior to beginning this process as your ability to input data will expire with excessive input delay.   Please limit your request to a maximum of 5 items of the same class or kind of merchandise and DO NOT file an electronic request (eRulings) if submission of a physical sample is required.  You will be provided with ample opportunity to review, edit, amend and print your ruling request, prior to transmission.  If your transmission is received in good order you will receive an email acknowledgment of receipt, complete with a binding ruling control number, within one business day.
