RE: The tariff classification of ball point pen tips from India

Dear Mr. Gandhi:

In your letter dated February 25, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is brass, and nickel-plated brass, tips for ball point pens. These comprise the ball and ball point, without the ink reservoir. U.S. Customs cannot comply in a classification ruling with your request for information on starting in the import and export business. Attached is a copy of New York Regional Informational Pipeline No. 2396 (March 10, 1995), which lists some numbers to call for information. We suggest that you call the general information number to order copies of US Government publications on importing to the United States, which are available for a moderate fee.

The applicable subheading for the ball point pen tips will be 9608.91.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pen nibs and nib points. The duty rate will be free of duty.
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.
