RE: The tariff classification of a nonwoven wiping cloth, from China.

Dear Mr. Barrett:

In your letter dated November 5, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The supplier is Hangzhou Tiani Wipe Cloth Company, Ltd., China.

The instant sample, as described in your correspondence, consists of a rectangular nonwoven wiping cloth, which is composed of a 70% cotton/30% rayon man-made fiber blend. This cloth measure about 12" x 24" and is for general wiping use.

The cloth was informally weighed and was found to weigh approximately 73 grams per square meter.

The applicable subheading for the cloth will be 5603.93.0090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for nonwovens, whether or not impregnated, coated, covered or laminated, other than filament (staple): weighing more than 70 g/ m², but not more than 150 g/ m². 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 Deborah Walsh at 646-733-3044.
