RE: The tariff classification of a disposable toilet lid and plunger shield from Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Pardo:

In your letter dated July 13, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Two samples were provided with your letter. The disposable toilet lid and plunger shield are both composed of polyethylene plastic sheeting. Both have expandable openings formed by heat sealing the sheeting around a large rubber band. The toilet lid is meant to cover a public toilet that is out of order. By means of the expandable opening, it can be wrapped around the toilet seat. The plunger shield is designed to prevent splatter when plunging a stuffed toilet.

The applicable subheading for the disposable toilet lid and plunger shield will be 3926.90.9880, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. 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 Joan Mazzola at 212-637-7034.
