RE: The tariff classification of a scouring pad/sponge from Italy

Dear Ms. Peterman:

In your letter dated July 19, 1995, on behalf of your client Consolidated Stores Corp., you requested a tariff classification ruling regarding a scouring pad/sponge. A sample of the item was submitted with your ruling and will be returned as you requested.

You state in your letter that the scouring pad/sponge (item #XL-704) is composed of green nonwoven manmade fibers containing a pumice abrasive. The green scouring pad is laminated to a yellow cellular sponge.

The applicable subheading for the scouring pad/sponge will be 6805.30.5000, 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.

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.
