Dear Ms. Morgan:

In your letter dated February 6, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

 The furniture item number 722571 is a folding metal step stool. The main frame is constructed of tubular steel and has non-slip plastic tips. The stool is lightweight, easy to carry and can be stored anywhere. The folding step stool is an article of utility that is designed to be placed on the floor or ground. It is typically used in the household for standing, sitting and elevating a person.

     The applicable subheading for the step stool will be 9403.20.0015, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for "Other furniture and parts thereof: Other metal furniture, Household: Other." The rate of duty will be Free.
