RE: The Special Marking Requirements of clocks from various countries.

Dear Ms. Klingbeil:

In your letter dated April 14, 1995, you requested a binding ruling regarding the Special Marking Requirements for clocks outlined in Chapter 91.

You have not provided us with a sample, however, you have indicted in your letter that you wish to use screen printing in permanent ink as a marking method in order to comply with the Special Marking Requirements.

Chapter 91, Additional U. S. Note 4, states:

"Special Marking Requirements: With the following exceptions, any movement or case provided for in this chapter, whether imported separately or attached to an article provided for in this chapter, shall not be permitted to be entered unless conspicuously and indelibly marked by cutting, die-sinking, engraving, stamping or mold-marking (either indented or raised), as specified below."

It is our opinion that the permanent ink screen printing would be a method equivalent to stamping and as such meets the Special Marking Requirements cited above.

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.
