RE: The tariff classification of a “Am Fib Shoe Cover” from Indonesia.

Dear Ms. Spagnuolo:

In your letter received by our office May 15, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample is being returned as requested.

The sample submitted is a “Am Fib Shoe Cover”, style number 9055, used over a cycling shoe to provide warmth and protection. It is made of two textile panels. The exterior panel is constructed of 80 percent nylon/20 percent spandex knit fabric. The interior panel is made of 100 percent polyester brushed knit fabric. The fabric panels are laminated together and sewn into a boot-shape shoe cover. It is designed to cover the ankle as well as the top and bottom of the shoe. The cover features two openings at the bottom and a zipper at the back.

The applicable subheading for the “Am Fib Shoe Cover” 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.

Articles classifiable under subheading 6307.90.9989, HTS, which are products of Indonesia are currently entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

To obtain current information on GSP, check the Customs Web site at www.customs.gov. At the Web site, click on "CEBB" and then search for the term "GSP".

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 Mitchel Bayer at 212-637-7086.
