RE: The tariff classification of baby furniture from China.

Dear Mr. Olsen:

In your letter dated January 2, 2006, on behalf of Bellini Baby Furniture, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise to be imported is identified as “Jessica Baby Furniture Group” consisting of baby furniture items made of wood, medium density fiberboard (MDF) and/or plywood as follows:
crib armoire chifferobe tall storage unit
3-drawer changing unit with unattached mirror

The applicable subheading for the crib will be 9403.50.9040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Other furniture and parts thereof: Wooden furniture of a kind used in the bedroom: Other: Other, Beds.” The rate of duty will be free.

The applicable subheading for the armoire, chifferobe, storage unit and 3-drawer changing unit will be 9403.50.9080, HTSUS, which provides for “Other furniture and parts thereof: Wooden furniture of a kind used in the bedroom: Other: Other, Other.” The rate of duty will be Free.

The applicable subheading for the mirror will be 7009.92.5000, HTSUS, which provides for “Glass mirrors Other: Framed: Over 929 square centimeters in reflecting area." The rate of duty will be 5% ad valorem.

The armoire, chifferobe, storage unit, 3-drawer changing unit and mirror may be subject to antidumping duties or countervailing duties. A list of AD/CVD proceedings at the Department of Commerce (DOC) and their product coverage can be obtained from the DOC website at: http://ia.ita.doc.gov, or you may write to them at the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, Office of Antidumping Compliance, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, N.W. Washington, DC 20230. 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.

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/.
