      Importing Hardwood Charcoal for BBQ from Asia to the USA - Requirements, taxes, fees

      Good day to everyone,

      I have recently begun working for a company that exports from Asia to Western markets. I am an American citizen so it is my goal to export products to the USA, specifically hardwood mangrove charcoal for barbecue. I am trying to understand this market such as its limitations and difficulties. What are the requirements to import charcoal? Taxes and fees?

      I have a very cheap price on the product so I am wondering why there is such a limited variety of charcoal in US grocery markets and why is the stuff so expensive? I can only think that perhaps I am overlooking an enormous obstacle with the import process.

      Thanks for your help.

      You must pay tax for your importation and taxes are usually not low in your country.

      Hi Peter,

      Exporting coal into the United States may be a bit complicated.
      Many ocean carriers will not handle this particular commodity since it's considered hazardous/flammable.
      The importer will have to pay a visit to local USDA office to apply for permit to import charcoal.

      Also If charcoal made of wood product, PPQ 585 is required.

      If charcoal(activated carbon), then no special document is required.
