RE: The tariff classification of pot scourers from China.

Dear Mr. Wood:

In your letter dated Jan. 9, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The fabric is made of strips of plastic; the strips meet the dimensional requirements of man-made fiber textile strips contained in Section XI, Legal Note 1(g) of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The textile fabric is rolled up to form a flattened ball. The scourers are non-abrasive and are used to clean non-stick cookware.

The sample which you submitted was examined and disposed of.

The applicable subheading for the pot scourers will be 6307.90.9889, HTSUS, which provides for other made up textile articles, other. The rate of duty will be 7% ad valorem.
