U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced several reclassification rulings in the December 23, 2015 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that took effect on February 22, 2016. One of those reclassifications will result in a significant lowering of the tariff applicable to pillowcases. At issue are the classification and the applicable tariff for two types of pillowcases of 100% cotton woven fabric that are packaged in a small self-fabric bag as other napped bed linen. These items had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 6302.31.9010 and subject to a 6.7% duty, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 6302.31.70 and pay instead a 3.8% duty. Bahrain, China, India, Pakistan, and Portugal are the principal suppliers of this product.
