As part of the entry process, goods must be classified. 19 CFR 152.11

Under 19 U.S.C. 1484, the "importer of record" under paragraph (2)(B), either in person or by an agent authorized by the party in writing, shall, using reasonable care by filing with the Customs Service the declared value, classification and rate of duty applicable to the merchandise.

Prior to the Customs Modernization Act enacted on December 8, 1993, it was CBP’s responsibility to “classify” imported goods.  Classifying goods is for duty purposes and determining whether the goods are subject to quotas, restraints, embargoes or other restrictions.  CBP is now responsible for the final classification and valuation of the goods by a process called “liquidation” of the entry.

Under 19 CFR 177 an importer may request a binding administrative ruling prior to importing.
