RE: The tariff classification of a greenhouse (Item #: Z95/PGR82005) from China.

Dear Mr. Hoffacker:

In your letter dated October 22, 2002, on behalf of Big Lots Stores, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample swatch was provided with your letter. The greenhouse is composed of manmade strips measuring not over 5 mm in width, thus meeting the dimensional requirements of textile strips. The strips have been woven, and then covered on both sides with a plastic coating that is visible to the naked eye other than merely by change of color. Material of this construction is classified in chapter 39 for tariff purposes. The greenhouse will be imported with a steel frame.

The applicable subheading for the greenhouse 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 646-733-3023.
