RE: The tariff classification of a narrow woven webbing material, for use in roll up blinds, from China.

Dear Mr. Clarke:

In your letter dated March 14, 2006, on behalf of Lewis Hyman Inc., Carson, CA, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The instant sample, as described in your letter, consists of a narrow woven webbing material, which consists of essentially, two narrow tapes, which, while not specifically described in your letter, appear to have been assembled in a continuous weaving operation. One tape measures about 1-inch in width while the other, or overlay tape, is about ¼" wide. These tapes are of a polyester man-made fiber construction. They will be imported as roll goods and are for use as a batten for roll up window blinds.

The applicable subheading for the product will be 5806.32.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other narrow woven fabrics, of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 6.2 percent ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.
