RE: The tariff classification of towel bars from China

Dear Mr. Simpson:

In your letter dated April 28, 1997, on behalf of LIS Enterprises, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is an aluminum towel bar designed to be installed in bathrooms to hold towels. We note that the sample you sent was not legally marked with the country of origin. We suggest that you contact your local port for advice on correct marking.

The applicable subheading for the towel bar will be 8302.50.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for base metal hat racks, hat pegs and similar fixtures. The rate of duty will be 1.4 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 James Smyth at 212-466-2084.
