RE: The tariff classification of an infant walkabout pad from Mexico.

Dear Mr. Goris:

In your letter dated January 23, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The furniture item is an infant walkabout pad, Fisher-Price style model #9133. The shell is composed of 100 percent nylon fabric and the padding and/or stuffing consists of polyester batting and urethane foam. The article will be attached to an infant walker frame for use as a support and seat, and its dimensions are approximately 16" H x 11" W. The walker frame is designed to stand on the floor.

The applicable subheading for the infant walkabout pad will be 9403.90.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other furniture and parts thereof, of textile material, except cotton. The duty rate will be 7 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 9403.90.6000, HTS, which are products of Mexico are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
