On July 23, 2018 the Court of International Trade ruled in the case of Swimways Corporation versus United States that items designed for the flotation of users in swimming pools, lakes, and similar bodies of water are properly classified as inflatable plastic articles under HTSUS 3926.90.75 (4.2% duty). The court thus rejected the ruling by U.S. Customs and Border Protection that classified these floats as other made up articles of textile fabric under HTSUS 6307.90.98 (7% duty).
