ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced several reclassification rulings in the January 1, 2015 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions. One of those reclassifications will result in a significant lowering of the tariff applicable to textile sponges. At issue are the classification and the applicable tariff for a regenerated cellulose sponge that contains talc on its non-scratch woven cloth side as natural or artificial abrasive powder or grain on a base of textile material. These items had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 5603.00.30 and subject to a 16% duty, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 6805.30.50 and thus duty-free. The principal suppliers of these products are Canada, the Republic of Korea, and the United Kingdom.
