RE: The tariff classification of natural bristle pastry/kitchen brushes from China.

Dear Mr. Liu:

In your letter dated May 3, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted samples are pastry/kitchen brushes, items WDPB003, WDPB004, and WDPB212 and WDPB412 that measure 2” x 8½, 3” x 9½” and 2” x 12” and 4” x 12” respectively. The brushes have wooden handles with natural bristles and are for use in the kitchen, e.g. to brush oil on a turkey, cookies, cakes or for applying barbecue sauce.

The applicable subheading for the natural bristle pastry/kitchen brushes will be 9603.90.8050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Brooms, brushesOther.” The rate of duty will be 2.8% ad valorem.

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