RE: The tariff classification of a “Beach Mat” from China.

Dear Mr. Sirico:

In your letter dated January 9, 2001, on behalf of Franco Manufacturing Company, Inc. you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample is being returned as requested.

The sample submitted is a “Beach Mat.” It is made of two textile fabric panels. One is constructed of nylon woven fabric and the other is made of a terry cloth fabric panel. The panels are sewn together with a woven textile binder fabric. Between the panels is polyester fiber filling and the product has been quilted. The quantity of polyester fiber filling is so small that the mat can not be considered to be a cushion. Sewn onto the woven fabric side is a pocket which is opened at both ends. When not in use the article is designed to be rolled up and secure with a nylon strap with metal snaps. It features nylon carry straps.

The applicable subheading for the “Beach Mat” 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 Mitchel Bayer at 212-637-7086.
