RE: The tariff classification of lint rollers from China.

Dear Mr. Smith:

In your letter dated June 20, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling on items ART 601 – 094 – 36 and ART 901 – 006 – 51. A sample of Item ART 601 - 094 – 36 was submitted for examination.

Based on the illustrated literature items ART 601 – 094 – 36 BA,,STIS and ART 901 – 006 – 51 BRATTBY are similar except for the shape and color of the molded handles. Both handles including roller mechanism are 8 – 1/2” in length. The roller tube which slides over the roller mechanism is 4” wide and 2” in diameter. In operation a release paper covering is temporarily removed from the roller, adhesive paper is exposed, rolled over the surface of pets and/or people (clothing), thereby removing lint (etc.). The roller is renewable by peeling off a spent layer, revealing another adhesive layer.

The applicable subheading for the lint rollers will be 4823.90.6700, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for: Other (than certain specified articles of paper): Of coated paper or paperboard: Other (than Gaskets, washers and other seals). The rate of duty will be free.

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 Paul Garretto at 646-733-3035.
