RE: The tariff classification of a plastic cap from Germany.

Dear Mr. Mercer:

In your letter dated September 6, 1991, on behalf of Pfeiffer, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The plastic cap is designed to fit over the top of a spray pump jar or bottle. The cap is designed in such a way so that it will fit securely over the bottle or jar and snap into place.

The applicable subheading for the plastic cap will be 3923.50.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for stoppers, lids, caps and other closures, of plastics. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

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 transaction.


Jean F. Maguire
Area Director
