RE: The tariff classification of hook-and-loop fastener strips on webbed fabric, from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Fung:

In your undated letter that was received in this office on July 28, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a strip of narrow webbed fabric that has hook-and-loop fastener strips attached to it. This piece of fabric is attached by a nail or rivet to a large piece of molded plastic that you identify as a “rack bumper.” You state that in your next shipment, you will ship strips only. The strip will be classified in this letter.

The webbing strip measures approximately 29-5/8” x 1-1/2” and is 100% polypropylene. The “hook” piece and the “loop” piece are on opposite ends and opposite sides, extending approximately 9-1/2”. They are not coated. You indicate that the webbing strips will be imported without links or fittings.

The applicable subheading for the webbed fabric with hook-and-loop fastener strips attached will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other made up textile articles, other. The rate of duty will be 7% 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 Mitchel Bayer at 646-733-3102.
