Dear Ms. Tu:

In your letter dated December 18, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample was provided with your letter. The covers will be imported in two basic shapes: rectangular and car-shaped. The sample is a rectangular cover composed of polyethylene vinyl acetate (PEVA) plastic. The rectangular covers are general purpose covers that will be imported in sizes ranging from 12 feet by 20 feet to 18 feet by 24 feet. The covers have a string running through the edges to secure the cover. The car-shaped covers are also composed of PEVA plastic and have a string for securing them to the car. The car-shaped covers will be imported in small, medium and large sizes.

The applicable subheading for the PEVA rectangular general purpose covers 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.
