RE: The tariff classification of baskets made of interwoven rattan poles produced by machining larger rattan poles from Indonesia

Dear Mr. Boesch:

In your letter dated October 9, 1995, which was received in our office on October 25, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on baskets made by interweaving small diameter rattan poles produced by machining larger rattan poles. A representative sample of a basket was submitted. It is made of interwoven rattan rods approximately one to two millimeters in diameter. An illustrated description of the processing steps performed on the rattan was also submitted. Rattan canes are first cut to remove the outer skin and knobs. Then the rattan poles are fed into a machine which cuts the poles into smaller rattan cores. This part of the process may be repeated several times until the last desired core comes out. The cores are uniformly round rods of small diameter generally 3 mm and under in thickness.

The applicable subheading for the baskets made of machined rattan poles will be 4602.10.1400, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for other baskets and bags, whether or not lined; of rattan or of palm leaf; wickerwork. The duty rate 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 the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Paul Garretto at 212-466-5779.
