RE: The tariff classification of 100% polyester staple fiber from Taiwan

Dear Mr. Boslooper:

In your undated letter that was received in this office on May 26, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client, Goffa International Corp., of Brooklyn, New York.

The item in question is identified as 100% polyester hollow conjugate fiber. It is semi-dull, raw white, “A” grade, with silicone. You state that the decitex is 15 and the staple length is 32mm. You state that it is not a bi-component fiber and that the fiber is used to make stuffed toys.

The applicable subheading for the polyester fiber will be 5503.20.0065, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed, or otherwise processed for spinning: of polyestersOtherMeasuring 13.2 decitex or more. The rate of duty will be 4.3% ad valorem.

Written decisions regarding the scope of AD/CVD orders are issued by the Import Administration in the Department of Commerce and are separate from tariff classification and origin rulings issued by Customs and Border Protection.
