Customs Proposed Changed Classification of Yarn with Higher Duty

In NY N200641, CBP classified the yarn called “Hooked Zpagetti” in subheading 5607.90.900, HTSUS, which provides for “Twine, cordage, ropes and cables, whether or not plaited or braided and whether or not impregnated, coated, covered or sheathed with rubber, or plastics: Other: Other.” It is now CBP’s opinion that the goods are properly classified in subheading 5606.00.0010, HTSUSA (Annotated), which provides for loop wale-yarn.

Similarly, in NY N244143 CBP classified Hoooked Zpagetti yarn sold as part of a craft kit in subheading 5607.90.9000, HTSUSA. It is now CBP’s opinion that the craft kit, with the yarn imparting the kit’s essential character, is also properly classified in subheading 5606.00.0010, HTSUSA.

The practical result will be an increase in the rate of duty from 6.3% to 8%. The importer is Orchard Yarn of Carlstadt, New Jersey.

Pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1625(c)(1), CBP intends to revoke NY N200641, and modify NY N244143, as regards the Style Hoooked Zpagetti yarn and craft kit, and any other ruling not specifically identified in order to reflect the proper classification of the merchandise pursuant to the analysis set forth in Headquarters Ruling (HQ) H249752. Additionally, pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1625(c)(2), CBP intends to revoke any treatment previously accorded by CBP to substantially identical transactions. Before taking this action, CBP will give consideration to any written comments received on or before July 8, 2016.
