RE: The tariff classification of a plastic cube from China or Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Powell:

In your letter dated July 24, 2006, on behalf of Florists’ Transworld Delivery, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample provided with your letter is an open cube composed of molded polystyrene plastic. The shell is covered with cellular PVC plastic sheeting that is backed with a plain knit textile fabric for mere reinforcement. The PVC outer layer is decorated with two rows of contrasting colored stitching along the top. The cube measures approximately 5 inches in each dimension. You state that the container will be sold to florists for use in their arrangements. The container is of a class or kind that is principally used in the home for general-purpose storage.

The applicable subheading for the plastic open cube will be 3924.90.5500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for tableware, kitchenware, other household articles and toilet articles, of plastics: other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 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/.

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 Joan Mazzola at 646-733-3023.
