RE: The tariff classification of a headband and a barrette from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Rainbow:

In your letter dated November 21, 1989, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective imports are a headband (style #1048) composed of a plastic band with a foam padding wholly covered by a printed textile fabric and a barrette (style #1057) composed of polyester filler material wholly covered by a printed textile bow permanently affixed to a metal spring clasp.

The applicable subheading for the hair ornaments will be 9615.19.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other combs, hair-slides and the like, not of hard rubber or plastics. The rate of duty will be 11 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
