RE: The tariff classification of a Portable Air Bed from China or Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Portal:

In your letter dated August 18, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise to be imported is a Portable Air Bed, Style No. 248486. The item measures 80”L x 60”W x 22”H when inflated and features dual chamber construction. The upper chamber serves as a mattress with adjustable firmness. The lower chamber doubles as a box spring platform that provides extra firmness and support for a traditional bed. The item is composed of 100% plastic vinyl with a flocked, waterproof nylon top. Included are a fast fill pump and a duffel bag with shoulder strap for transport.

The applicable subheading for the Portable Air Bed will be 9403.70.8010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Other furniture and parts thereof: Furniture of plastics: Other, Household.” The rate of duty will be free.

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 Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
