RE: The tariff classification of polyester staple fibers from China

Dear Ms. Parmann:

In your letter dated July 12, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a small bag of polyester staple fibers which you describe as “15Dx51 mm,” which we take to mean 15 decitex and 51 mm length. You also describe it as regenerated, non-conjugated, white, hollow, and siliconized. After importation it will be used as stuffing for pillows and comforters. You submitted a photo of the bales in which the fibers will be imported.

The applicable subheading for the polyester staple fibers will be 5503.20.0065, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed, or otherwise processed for spinning: of polyestersOtherMeasuring 13.2 decitex or more. The rate of duty will be 4.3% 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 Mitchel Bayer at 646-733-3102.
