RE: The tariff classification of vinyl tiles from China and Taiwan

Dear Mr. Bernhoft:

In your letter dated June 15, 2000 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a sample chart of plastic floor coverings. They are stated to be made from a laminated vinyl. The tiles, which are designed to resemble wooden planks, will be imported in 101 x 914 and 152 x 914 millimeter sizes.

The applicable subheading for the vinyl tiles will be 3918.10.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for floor coverings of plastics, whether or not self-adhesive, in rolls or in the form of tiles: of polymers of vinyl chloride: floor coverings: vinyl tile. The rate of duty will be 5.3 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 John Hansen at 212-637-7078.
