RE: The tariff classification of a swim trainer system from China.

Dear Mr. Alberdi:

In your letter dated July 18, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling, on behalf of HTF USA, Inc., your client.

You are requesting the tariff classification on a four-piece swim trainer system. The swim trainer system includes the following: a pair of arm bands for swimming, a swim vest, a small float with handles and a large float. The product will be packaged together and sold as a complete swim trainer system. All four inflatable pieces are constructed of plastic and are bright orange in color. All four inflatable articles are functional pieces that will be used by a child or an adult, while engaged in the activity of swimming. You have not requested that the samples be returned to you.

The applicable subheading for the four-piece inflatable swim trainer system will be 9506.29.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Water skis, surf boards, sailboards and other water-sport equipment; parts and accessories thereof: OtherOther.” The rate of duty will be free.

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 Tom McKenna at 212-637-7015.
