RE: The tariff classification of abrasive pad from Italy.

Dear Ms. Ehme:

This is in response to your request for a tariff classification ruling, on behalf of your client Consolidated Stores Corp., dated December 2, 1993.

The submitted sample is a scouring pad which you state is composed of a poly amidic fibers, acrylic resins, urea, and quartz.

The Customs laboratory has confirmed that the product is composed of non-woven fibers with quartz abrasive affixed throughout.

The provision applicable to the scouring pads will be subheading 6805.30.50, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for natural or artificial abrasive powder or grain, on a base of other materials: other. The rate of duty will be free.
You have stated your belief that this item should be classified under HTS 6805.30.1000. That provision only covers items which are imported in the form of sheets belts, strips, disks, sleeves or similar forms. Since your product is a pad, it is properly classified under HTS 6805.30.50.

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.
