RE: The tariff classification of Barbecue/Fireplace Matches from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated March 12, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The articles to be imported are Barbecue/Fireplace Matches. Each match measures 11 inches in length. The matches, 90 to a box, are packaged in a cardboard box which is shrink-wrapped. This article has been designated Rite Aid Item #962627. A sample of the box of matches was enclosed with your letter.

The applicable subheading for the Barbecue/Fireplace Matches will be 3605.00.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for matches with natural wood stems. The duty rate 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.

If you have any questions pertaining to this matter, please contact National Import Specialist Jacques Preston of this office at (212) 466-5488.
