RE: The tariff classification of glass tables from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Stankey:

In your letter dated January 30, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Item number T784-0 is described as the “Kelsey Oval Cocktail Table.” Item number T784-6 is described as the “Kelsey Round End Table.” These items are constructed of glass tops, wood legs and a metal frame. Both tables also incorporate a second glass shelf. Based on the submitted literature and component material breakdown, the glass imparts the essential character.

The applicable subheading for the oval cocktail table and the round end table will be 9403.89.6010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Other furniture and parts thereof: .Furniture of other materials, including cane, osier or similar materials: Other: Household.” 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.
