Alken-Murray green header, harmonized tariff codes for microbial products


 Alken Clear-Flo®, Enz-Odor, Treat-A-Loo and Nu-Bind products may be shipped under the following Harmonized Tariff Codes ("Schedule B Number") - updated 01/04/2007

 "Bacteria/microbial cultures for environmental defense"


"Bacterial Cultures Probiotics for improved health of fish or animals"


"Bacteria/microbial cultures, NESOI"




  "Surface active, washing and cleaning preparations, NESOI, put up for retail sale"

(Liquid products containing surfactants ONLY - CF 4100, 5100, 5200, 5201, 5202, 5300, Enz-Odor 1, 2 & 7 & 12, Nu-Bind 2 & 3 & Treat-A-Loo 1 & 2)

Please select the tariff code and description suggested by your customs agent. Although these are the ONLY CODES now accepted for Alken-Murray microbial products, some countries prefer to apply different wording to distinguish our SAFE bacterial cultures from potential hazardous imports. Although several countries used to allow bacterial cultures to be classified as "enzymes", Alken-Murray and one client were both criticized for this classification the last time it was attempted, so all reference to "enzymes" has been removed from product labels and export literature.
LET US KNOW your selection and we will mark all invoices and other official documents with the correct code and description preferred by your country.
