2.	Chapter 99 number(s) for additional duties 
3.	For trade remedies, 
first report the Chapter 99 HTS for Section 301, 
followed by the Chapter 99 HTS for Section 232 or 201 duties (if applicable), 
followed by the Chapter 99 HTS for Section 201 or 232 quota (if applicable).

5.	Chapter 99 number for other quota (not covered by #3) (if applicable)
