RE: The tariff classification of pet cages and a pet bed from China

Dear Mr. Yarshen:

In your letter dated May 11, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise consists of two pet cages and one pet bed for use by dogs and cats in the home. The cage designed for a dog has an interior plastic liner. The cages and beds are composed primarily of steel wire and have a decorative plastic wicker covering. The bed has a fitted cushion.

The applicable subheading for the pet cages and bed will be 7326.20.0070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other articles of iron or steel, articles if iron or steel wire, other. The rate of duty will be 3.9 percent ad valorem.

You have asked whether these products are 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/.

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 James Smyth at 646-733-3018.
