RE: The tariff classification of toy scooter from Taiwan

Dear Mr. Knox:

In your letter dated August 27, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective import, BounceScooter, is a two-wheeled toy scooter designed for a child. The scooter measures approximately 51” in length, with 20” wheels, and is constructed of a welded metal frame covered with ¼” inch plastic. A child can propel the scooter by bouncing on the platform (the flat vertical metal footrest between the front and back wheel). A handle clutch controls whether the rider wants to bounce the scooter along or just coast by pushing the scooter. The scooter has no pedals, chains, gears or motor.

The applicable subheading for the BounceScooter will be 9503.00.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Tricycles, scooters, pedal carsother toysparts and accessories thereof Other. 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 Thomas McKenna at 646-733-3025.
