Dear Mr. Alsup:

In your letter dated October 6, 1999, on behalf of Connor Toys, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a mattress component used to hold a convoluted piece of foam to form a pillow top mattress. It is made of a nonwoven fabric panel. Attached around the edges of the nonwoven panel is a woven fabric panel with foam backing. This panel has horizontal and vertical top stitching throughout the article creating a quilted pattern.

The applicable subheading for the mattress component will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The rate of duty will be 7 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 Alan Tytelman at 212-637-7092.
