RE: The tariff classification of staircase chests from China.

Dear Mr. Porter:

In your letter dated October 19, 2994, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise to be imported consists of staircase chests. The chests are floor standing decorative storage units used principally in living rooms, family rooms or offices. They are made of elm wood with metal hinges and latches and resemble staircases. You have submitted pictures with specifications of four staircase chests with your request.

The applicable subheading for the staircase chests will be 9403.60.8080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Other furniture and parts thereof: Other wooden furniture: Other, Other.” 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.
