RE: The tariff classification of a feather duster from China.

Dear Ms. Ramsey:

In your letter dated June 25, 2007 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Model number 62300 is called an extendible multi-duster. This item consists of a polyester handle that is in two parts: an 11-inch base with a 7-inch extension that is inserted into the base. When fully assembled, the duster can be extended to a total of 36 inches. The head of the extension allows the insertion of a polyester dusting head. The feather duster and five disposable dusting heads will be packaged together. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The applicable subheading for the multi-duster will be 9603.90.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Brooms, brushes (including brushes constituting parts of machines, appliances or vehicles), hand-operated mechanical floor sweepers, not motorized, mops and feather dusters; prepared knots and tufts for broom or brush making; paint pads and rollers; squeegees (other than roller squeegees): Other: Feather dusters.” 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 Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
