Guidelines and General Information
1. "Shells" are articles of textile that are used in the manufacture of articles of subheading 9404.90. The shells, which are sometime called "casings", are first filled with either feathers, down, wool, silk, or a synthetic fibre and then finished, for example, as duvets, comforters, cushions, or pillows.
2. The tariff item does not include finished products, such as pillowcases of heading 63.02 or cushion covers (shams) of heading 63.04.
3. Textile shells are properly classified under tariff item 6307.90.50 (Shells for use in the manufacture of articles of subheading 9404.90).
4. For certainty regarding the tariff classification of a particular good, importers may request an advance ruling. Details on how to make such a request are found in CBSA Memorandum D11-11-3, Advance Rulings for Tariff Classification.
