RE: The tariff classification of an inflatable plastic cooler from China.

Dear Mr. Stinson:

In your letter dated January 6, 2003, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as item number 995786, an inflatable cooler. The cooler measures 22” long by 22” wide by 26” high. It is made of 100% polyvinyl chloride sheeting. The intended use of the cooler will be to hold beverages and maintain a cold temperature.

Your letter of inquiry states you believe that this product would be classified under tariff number 9505.90.6000. However, classification under 9505.90.6000 does not apply because a pumpkin is not a symbol of Halloween.

The sample is returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for item number 995786, inflatable plastic cooler, will be 3924.10.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for tableware, kitchenware, other household articlesof plastics: tableware and kitchenware: Other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 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.
