RE: The tariff classification of plastic baby products from the Netherlands.

Dear Ms. Van Den Berg:

In your letter dated June 22, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted catalog pages depicting five samples of baby products made of plastic.

Item #6806 is a baby’s playpen mattress. The outside of the mattress is composed of soft plastic and the inside contains glued parts to maintain the shape of the mattress.

Item #6566 is a bottle keeper that is composed of molded plastic.

Item #6570 consists of placemats that are made of soft plastic.

Item #6802 is a dress cushion. The outside is composed of soft plastic and the inside contains parts that are glued together to maintain the shape of the dress cushion.

Item #6850 is a baby’s nursery case that is composed of soft plastic with glued parts inside to maintain the shape of the case. The nursery case is designed with separate compartments and an adjustable strap.

We cannot rule on item #6850 at this time. In order to classify this item we will need a sample and a breakdown of the component materials by weight and value.

The applicable subheading for items #6566 and #6570, will be 3924.90.5500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides forother household articlesof plastics: other, other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.

The rate of duty will be 6 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 Alice Masterson at 212-637-7090.
