RE: The tariff classification of a sunshade from China.

Dear Ms. Berg:

In your letter dated January 28, 2004, you requested a ruling on behalf of Gale Specific of Ontario, CA, on tariff classification.

You submitted a sample of an “Exterior Roll-Up Solar Shade” along with technical specifications, advertising information, and assembly and use instructions. The screen is woven of PVC-coated polyester yarns, making it a textile fabric for tariff purposes. The sunscreen is for outdoor use and is said to provide 80% UV protection. It may be installed over a window or elsewhere, such as a patio or deck. It rolls vertically up and down.

The applicable subheading for this product will be 6306.99.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sunblinds: other: of other textile materials. The general rate of duty will be 4.5 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R.).

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 Mitchel Bayer at 646-733-3102.
