RE: The tariff classification of a paperboard box, from China

Dear Ms. Weinberg:

In your letter dated October 26, 1999, on behalf of your client, Mast Industries, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample article was submitted, which will be returned to you, as requested.

The sample is a paperboard rigid box, of a kind used for general purposes in the home. It is designated “Style 8094(1A), Octagon paper box, pearlized white”. It has a base and a fitted lid, without closure. With the lid in place it measures 8” in length, 5 ½” in width, and stands 5 5/8” high.

The box and its lid are covered on the exterior with an openwork mesh of plastic filaments, which may be woven. Between the mesh and the outer surfaces are small decorative artificial flowers, and the box and lid are further ornamented with spangles attached to the mesh at irregular intervals. The interior exposed paperboard surfaces of the box and lid are coated with a shiny material, not identified in your letter.

The applicable subheading for Style 8094(1A) Octagon paper box, as described, will be 4823.90.6500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: Other (than certain specified articles of coated paper or paperboard). The rate of duty will be 2.8 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 Carl Abramowitz, at 212-637-7060.
