RE: Tariff classification of rubber floor mats for automobiles

Dear Mr. Peress:

You requested a classification under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUSA) for rubber floor mats for automobiles to be imported from England.


The instant merchandise is rubber floor mats for automo- biles. The material of chief content and value of the mats is rubber. Rubber floor mats are not meant to directly cover the floor of an automobiles but rather to cover an automobile carpet. Information presented to us by our New York office indicates that such floor mats are made of vulcanized rubber other than hard rubber.


What is the classification of such rubber floor mats for automobiles?


There is a specific provision for floor coverings and mats of vulcanized rubber other than hard rubber in Heading 4016, HTSUSA. The instant rubber floor mats for automobiles are classifiable there.


The instant rubber floor mats are classified in subheading 4016.91.0000, HTSUSA, dutiable at the rate of 5.3 percent ad valorem.
