RE: The tariff classification of a bamboo shade from China

Dear Ms. Abustan:

In your letter dated May 14, 2004 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on a bamboo shade. A sample of the product was submitted, which will be returned to you as you requested. The sample is a finished 23” wide shade composed of narrow 1 mm thick bamboo strips. The bamboo strips are placed side by side and woven together with thread. The outer edges are trimmed with imitation leather. The shade is complete with an attached valance made of the same material, a pull cord and hardware.

The applicable subheading for the bamboo shade will be 4602.10.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for other articles made from plaiting materials, of one or more of the materials bamboo, rattan, willow or wood, other. The rate of duty will be 6.6 per cent ad valorem.

The holding set forth above applies only to the specific factual situation and merchandise description as identified in the ruling request. This position is clearly set forth in 19 CFR 177.9(b)(1). This section states that a ruling letter is issued on the assumption that all of the information furnished in the ruling letter, either directly, by reference, or by implication, is accurate and complete in every material respect.

This ruling is being issued under the assumption that the subject goods, in their condition as imported into the United States, conform to the facts and the description as set forth both in the ruling request and in this ruling. In the event that the facts or merchandise are modified in any way, you should bring this to the attention of Customs and you should resubmit for a new ruling in accordance with 19 CFR 177.2. You should also be aware that the material facts described in the foregoing ruling may be subject to periodic verification by the Customs Service.

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 Paul Garretto at 646-733-3035.
