RE: The tariff classification of a snowbrush/scraper from

Dear Ms. Columbe:

In your letter dated April 12, 1990, on behalf of your

client, Atlantic Promotions Inc., you requested a tariff

classification ruling.
The prospective import, the snowbrush/scraper, consists of a

plastic double-ended tool with a plastic scraper at one end and a

brush on the other. The brush is able to be squeezed free of

snow by a device in the handle. There is no essential character

in this multifunctional item. Under General Rules of

Interpretation (G.R.I.) 3(c) when there is no essential

character, the item will be classified under the item which

appears last in numerical order among those items which equally

merit consideration. That item is the brush.
The applicable subheading for the snowbrush/scraper will be

9603.90.8050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States

(HTS), which provides for other brushes. The rate of duty will

be 5.6 percent ad valorem.

Goods classifiable under subheading 9603.90.8050, HTS, which

have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a

4.4 percent ad valorem rate of duty under the United States-

Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all

applicable regulations.
This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section

177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry

documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the

documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be

brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the
