               value noted should be the value that would have been charged if a charge was made.

Prototypes - Prototypes of product shipped to Honeywell are to be clearly identified as such and the cost is
to include all research & development costs, materials and labor associated with the prototype. Please
indicate HTS 9817.85.01 on your export documentation.

No Charge Items / Consignments - No charge items and consignments are to be identified as such on the

DDP Shipments - For shipments that are sent to Honeywell under INCOTERMs "DDP" (Delivered Duty
Paid), please noted that Honeywell cannot act as importer off record for customs clearance purposes in the

authorization to clear the shipment on behalf of the shipper. This may be noted on the shipper's invoice.
