RE: The tariff classification of an ironing board from China.

Dear Ms. Simpson:

In your letter dated March 24, 2007, on behalf of The Evercare Company, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Literature has been submitted showing The Over the Door Ironing Board. The legs and top (platform) are made of steel with a cotton cover and foam padding. The ironing board hangs on the door but when used has one leg that extends to the floor to support one end while the other stays attached to the door.

The applicable subheading for the Over the Door Ironing Board will be 9403.20.0011, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Other metal furniture, Household, Floor-standing, metal-top ironing boards”. The rate of duty will be free.

The Over the Door Ironing Board 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 U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, Office of Antidumping Compliance, 14th St. and Constitution Ave., N.W. Washington, DC 20230. Written decisions regarding the scope of AV/CVD orders are issued by the Import Administration in the Department of Commerce and are separate from tariff classification and origin rulings issued by the 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 Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
