RE: The tariff classification of a bread warmer from India.

Dear Mr. Thomas:

In your letter dated March 24, 1997 you requested a classification ruling.

You submitted a sample of a bread warmer which will be constructed from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. It measures 19 inches wide by 21 inches long. There is a sleeve pocket at one end of the warmer which measures approximately 8 inches wide. One end of the sleeve is completely open. This opening is designed so that a bread plank or board may be inserted into it. A heating pad may also be inserted into the open pocket. This cloth functions like an ordinary bread warmer; that is, the cloth is wrapped around the heated bread to preserve its warmth as much as possible.

The applicable subheading for the bread warmer will be 6304.92.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other furnishing articles, excluding those of heading 9404: other: not knitted or crocheted, of cotton. The duty rate will be 6.9 percent ad valorem.

The bread warmer falls within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India are subject to the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

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 John Hansen at 212-466-5854.
