Dear Mr. Williams:

This classification decision under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) is being issued in accordance with the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

DATE OF INQUIRY : April 24, 1997

MERCHANDISE : You have submitted samples of dog diapers from Canada for a binding ruling. The package submitted contains 7 diapers, as well as braces, which are used to hold the diaper on the dog's body. The diapers themselves consist of a liner that is a rough rectangular shape. One half of the liner, which is polyethylene, has a pulp- wood pad affixed to it, and that half of the liner is elasticized. The end that is not elasticized has an adhesive tab at each side to attach that end of the diaper to the other end. There is another adhesive tab at the center of the elasticized end. There is a hole in the middle of the liner for the dog's tail. A pouch is formed by an extra piece of polyethylene located under the dog's tail.

HTS PROVISION : Saddlery and harness for any animal (including traces, leads, knee pads, muzzles, saddle cloths, saddle bags, dog coats and the like), of any material: Dog leashes, collars, muzzles, harnesses and similar dog equipment.

HTS SUBHEADING : 4201.00.3000.
