Dear Ms. Davidson:

RE: The tariff classification of plastic drawer organizers from Italy.

Dear Ms. Davidson:

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

The submitted illustration depicts a “Shuttle” cutlery tray identified as VPN number 052015. This product is composed of 100 percent polypropylene. The cutlery tray is designed to accommodate oversized and long utensils. This tray will adjust to the length of the drawer for a custom fit. The top part of the tray lifts off for easy access to the cutlery on the bottom.

The applicable subheading for the plastic tray organizer will be 3924.90.5500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other household articles and toilet articles, of plastics. The duty rate 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.
