RE: The tariff classification of a reflective cat collar from Canada.

Dear Ms. Dunn:

In your letter dated October 12, 1993 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a cat collar. The "tenth life" collar is a reflective, adjustable, break away cat collar. The item consists of nylon webbing or elastic with a reflective film on top. It has a plastic buckle and glide and a steel rectangular D- ring. The collar is used for cat identification and as a safety device to increase a cats visibility at night to automobiles.

The applicable subheading for the reflective cat collar will be 4201.00.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for saddlery and harness for any animal (including traces, leads, knee pads, muzzles, saddle cloths, saddle bags, dog coats and the like), of any material: Dog leashes, collars, muzzles, harnesses and similar dog equipment. The rate of duty will be 2.4 percent ad valorem.

Goods classifiable under subheading 4201.00.3000 Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a free 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 transaction.
