RE: The tariff classification of various ceramic and steel bath accessories from China.

Dear Mr. Prososki:

In your letter dated December 10, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling. You submitted samples with your request, which will be returned to you shortly.

The articles in question are various ceramic and steel bath accessories, identified as Louie Bath Accessories. The 3 bath articles are a ceramic lotion dispenser, an all-purpose steel can and a ceramic toothbrush holder. The lotion dispenser consists of a ceramic reservoir and a zinc die cast hand-operated pump assembly. By pressing up and down on the pump assembly, liquid soap or lotion is dispensed through the dispenser head. The all-purpose steel can, identified as the Louie Can, has a chrome plated zinc die cast base. The last article is a ceramic toothbrush holder, identified as the Louie Toothbrush holder. The ceramic toothbrush holder has a chrome-plated zinc die-cast base and a chrome-plated zinc die-cast lid. The lid has holes in the top, which allows for toothbrushes to be inserted and held.

The applicable subheading for the lotion dispenser will be 8424.89.7090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other mechanical appliances for projecting, dispersing or spraying liquids. The rate of duty will be 1.8 percent ad valorem.
