RE: The tariff classification of a plastic salad serving bowl from China

It measures 11” in diameter. Based on the size of the bowl, it is the opinion of this office that this item is of a class or kind of merchandise that is principally used as a serving dish from which portions of salad are taken and placed in smaller bowls (not included in the importation) for individual use.

The rate of duty will be 6.5 percent 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).
