The boards are rectangular, and will be imported in sizes of 20’’ by 30”, 22” by 28”, 11” by 14”, and 9” by 12”. The boards will be used in presentations by students or businesses.

The applicable subheading for the polystyrene foam boards will be 3921.11.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other plates, sheets, film, foil and strip, of plastics: cellular: of polymers of styrene. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.
