RE: The tariff classification of dog brush from China.

Dear Mr. Thompson:

In your letter dated January 25, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted a sample of the Brush Buddy, a dog brush used for cleaning and massaging dogs or other pets. It removes shedding hair with thousands of flexible bristles. The brush is made of rubber, which is easy to clean and comfortable for pets. The top surface is a cotton towel with pockets for hand placement and easy use. The terry cloth towel quickly dries a wet dog.

The applicable subheading for the dog brush will be 9603.90.8050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “BrushesOther, Other”. The rate of duty will be 2.8% 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 Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
