In the May 31, 2023, Customs Bulletin and Decisions, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is reclassifying reflective aluminum composite panels as aluminum sheets under HTSUS 7606 or aluminum foil under HTSUS 7607 (CBP states that to provide the duty rate each item must be specifically described and identified for purposes of classification) rather than as aluminum articles under HTSUS 7616.99.5190 (2.5 percent duty).

The items at issue are made by laminating a polyethylene core between two sheets of aluminum alloy. They are advertised as an unbreakable, lightweight, flexible, metallic mirror. They are used in a variety of places such as ceilings, walls, columns, furniture, and displays, and as trims and accents.

Ruling HQ H320936 will revoke ruling HQ 953138, and modify ruling NY N284130, to reflect this change, effective with respect to goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 30.

For more information on how to seek or utilize classification and other rulings, please contact attorney Deb Stern at (305) 894-1007 or via email.
