RE: The tariff classification of automotive litter bins from China

Dear Mr. Thorsteinson:

In your letter dated October 21, 2004 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Bell Automotive.

The item is a litter bin bag. It is an 8 ½ x 9 ½ pouch, an expandable depth of 1 ½ “(top) to 3” (bottom), with hook and loop closure flap, hanging loop, a pair of opposing 1” x 10 ½” mounting straps, and an adhesive mounting strip. Material construction is nylon and polyester. It is decorated with colorful if simplistic flower and ladybug embroidery. It can be mounted around the headrest, around a knob, or on the body.

The applicable subheading for the litter bins will be 8708.99.8080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of headings 8701 to 8705; Other parts and accessories; Other; Other; Other.. The rate of duty will be 2.5 percent.

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 Robert DeSoucey at 646-733-3008.
