RE: The tariff classification of a Pencil Sharpener from China and/or Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Pelletier:

In your letter dated June 12, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample you submitted is a pencil sharpener of the hand-held, nonmechanical type, with a single hole. It is rectangular, and measures approximately 1 inch by 3/4 inch. It is of plastic, with a metal cutting edge.

The applicable subheading for the Pencil Sharpener will be 8214.10.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for paper knives, letter openers, erasing knives, pencil sharpeners (nonmechanical) and blades and other parts thereof. The rate of duty will be 0.4 cents each plus 5.7 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.

Area Director
