RE: The tariff classification of plastic coasters from China.

Dear Ms. Ramsey:

In your letter dated April 10, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as a set of four “Bull’s-eye Coasters”, item number 59270. The flexible coasters are made of PVC material. They stay securely in place while protecting your furniture from watermarks and scratches. The coasters can be used on a coffee table, desktop, bookshelf or on a kitchen or dining room table. The set of coasters includes one of each of the following colors: red, orange, green and blue. Each coaster has the pattern of a bulls-eye target, in which there are a series of seven circular designs, each decreasing in diameter, with the design on the perimeter of the coaster having the largest diameter and the one in the center having the smallest diameter. The design of each coaster is of one of the four colors referenced above, and is slightly raised from the white backdrop of the coaster. Each coaster measures 3-7/8” in diameter, in its’ entirety.

The applicable subheading for the plastic coasters will be 3924.10.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for tableware, kitchenware, other household articlesof plastics: tableware and kitchenware: other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.
