RE: The tariff classification of a plastic revolving sprinkler from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated December 5, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as item #961306, "Plastic Revolving Sprinkler". This sprinkler stands 3 3/4" high and it measures 8" around. It can be attached to a gardenhose and revolve in circles for even watering.

There are no mechanical parts to the sprinkler, therefore the item can not be classified as a mechanical appliance for the projecting, dispensing or spraying liquids.

The applicable subheading for the "Plastic Revolving Sprinkler", will be 3924.90.5500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for tableware, kitchenware, other household articles and toilet articles, of plastic, other, other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 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 the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Theodore Rauch at 212-466-5892.
