RE: The tariff classification of an inflatable mattress/bed (with a quilted cover) and a battery operated pump in a carry bag from China.

Dear Mr. Feldman:

In your letter dated February 03, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item to be classified is an inflatable mattress/bed. The mattress/bed, which is composed of 100% PVC, is a cordless, self-inflating bedding system that is sold with the bed, a rechargeable motor pump, a fitted quilted cover, and a carrying bag which is also the packaging. The mattress/bed is being marketed as a vacation or travel bedding system.

The applicable subheading for the inflatable mattress/bed, along with the battery operated pump, quilted cover, and carrying bag will be 3926.90.7500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Pneumatic mattresses and other inflatable articles, not elsewhere specified or included". The rate of duty will be 4.2 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 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 Thomas A. McKenna at 212-466-5475.
