July 2010 Classification News

06 August 2010

The classification of doormats was the focus of the European Commission in July. Regulation No. 692/2010 focussed specifically on two types of doormats and the correct commodity codes that they should be classified under. They are as follows:

  • Thick semicircular article, with overall dimensions of approximately 75 cm in length x 45 cm in width, made of a woven textile fabric of spun coconut fibres, which forms the majority of the surface, with a rubber backing. The article is surrounded by a decorative rubber border (doormat) (CN Code 5702.20.00) and;
  • Thick rectangular article measuring approx. 60 cm in length x 40 cm in width made of coconut fibres forming a pile surface. The coconut fibres are bonded to a substrate of poly(vinyl chloride), which forms the backing. The mat is surrounded by a decorative poly(vinyl chloride)-border (doormat). (CN code 5705.00.90)
