RE: The tariff classification of sawn western red cedar products from Canada

The wooden part, (F1) Rafter is shaped on both ends with an angle cut. The rest of the wooden parts (except the (E4) Floor Joist) are drilled with holes for assembly. Specifications, diagrams, and copies of photographs were submitted, in lieu of samples.

The applicable subheading for the sawn western red cedar products that are described in the foregoing paragraph (E1, E2, E3, E5, E6, E7, E8, E9, E10, F1, and G1) will be 9506.99.6080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles and equipment for general physical exercise, gymnastics, athletics, other sportsor outdoor games, not specified or included elsewhere in this chapter;parts and accessories thereofother.
