RE: The tariff classification of plastic microwave cooking dishes from Taiwan and a plastic flower arranger from China.

Dear Ms. Ramsey:

In your letter dated August 22, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted illustrations depict items identified as follows;

SKU# 62800 – Set/4 Microwave Cooking Dishes w/Lids. This item includes two large dishes, each with a capacity of 16 ounces and two small dishes, each with a capacity of 6 ounces. Each of the four dishes is made of clear polymethylpentene (TPX) plastic, which allows for the visibility of the contents without removing the lid. The lids keep splatters down to a minimum and are vented, which provide for better air circulation, resulting in more even cooking. The microwave dishes are dishwasher safe.

SKU# 62560 – Magic Flower Arranger. This item consists of four mini bud vases that are all attached to each other. Each vase has a round bottom, and can only stand when placed on the flat base that is included with this item. The base has four round indentations, designed to create a snug fit for these vases. The vases and the base are made of acrylonitrile-styrene (AS). The base measures 5-1/2 inches wide and the entire Magic Flower Arranger, when situated on the base, measures 5-1/2 inches high.

The applicable subheading for the plastic microwave cooking dishes 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.
