RE: The tariff classification of willow dog beds from China

Dear Mr. Crago:

In your letter dated March 22, 2006 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on an assortment of three sizes of willow dog beds, identified as item number C056AA00013. A photograph of the product was submitted. The dog beds consist of rectangular baskets made of willow. One side of the basket is lower in height than the other sides to allow for easier access by the pet. The baskets are lined with polyester fabric. The sizes given are 22” long x 16-1/2” wide x 10-5/8” high (large), 19-5/8” long x 14-1/2” wide x 9-7/8” high (medium) and 17-3/4” long x 12-5/8” wide x 9” high (small).

The applicable subheading for the willow dog beds, item number C056AA00013, will be 4602.10.1200, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for: Basketwork, wickerwork and other articles, made directly to shape from plaiting materials . . : Other baskets and bags, whether or not lined: Of willow. The rate of duty will be 5.8 percent ad valorem.
