RE: The tariff classification of various amusement articles, products of the United States, packaged in and reimported from, Mexico

Dear Mr. Trevino:

In your letter dated June 30, 1995, to the District Director, U.S. Customs, Laredo, Texas, on behalf of your client, Treat Entertainment, Florence, Alabama, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Other Customs related matters, such as country of origin marking requirements and NAFTA documentation, have been separately submitted by you to the Headquarters Office of the Customs Service for their consideration.

Samples were not submitted. In lieu thereof you have furnished illustrated material in some detail.

Your client will ship into Mexico various items of U.S. manufacture: sportscards, milkcaps, card holders, gameboards, milkcap storage tubes, binders, and packaging materials consisting of plastic cubes, cardboard and plastic trays, plastic globes and tubes.

In Mexico, the various components will be packaged into sets, sealed, and returned. The finished products are to be mainly used in the United States for the amusement of children and adults alike, either in the form of games or as an assortment of cards and supplies for collecting.

The applicable subheading for the packaged articles, of U.S. manufacture, as described, will be 9801.00.1098, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: Products of the United States when returned after having been exported, without having been advanced in value or improved in condition by any process of manufacture or other means while abroad...Other (than certain enumerated articles). The rate of duty will be Free.

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.
