RE: The tariff classification of Hairbrushes and Combs from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea.

Dear Ms. Jackson:

In your letter dated November 23, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling on the following items:

Items Value HTS Number Duty


Plastic 40 cents 9615.11.3000 28.8 cents per gross plus 4.6 percent ad valorem

Natural Wood 50 cents 9615.19.4000 28.8 cents per gross plus
4.6 percent ad valorem


Plastic 50 cents 9603.29.8010 0.3 cents each plus 3.6 percent ad valorem

In your letter you indicate the merchandise will be imported in bulk, i.e., 1 dz each in a inner box with 12 dz. to a carton. If sold in bulk or by the piece without repackaging, each comb and brush must be indivdually marked to indicate the country or origin. The outside container must also be marked. If the merchandise is intended to be repacked in retail containers after its release from Customs custody, the importer shall repack without obscuring or concealing the country of origin marking appearing on the article, or else the new container shall be marked to indicate the country of origin. (CR 134.11)

If the article is intended to be sold or transferred to a subsequent purchaser or repacker, the importer shall notify such purchaser or transferee, in writing at the time of sale or transfer, that any repacking of the article must conform to the marking requirements indicated above (CR134.26). Contact your local port for more details concerning certification requirements.

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.
