RE: The tariff classification of extruded polypropylene ribbon from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Ross:

In your letter dated March 14, 1994, on behalf of Zibi-Core Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted a sample of an extruded 100% polypropylene white ribbon measuring 3/16 inch or 4.76 millimeters (mm) in width. According to your letter, the product will be exported by Janson Co. Ltd., Taiwan, in 500 linear foot reels to Janson Co. Ltd., Indonesia. At that time, the ribbon will be cut into 5 foot pieces, coiled and sealed for export to the United States. The ribbon is intended to be used for attaching 18 inch diameter Mylar balloons to plastic balloon weights. We consider Taiwan to be the ribbon's country of origin and the imported product to be synthetic textile strip in the piece.

The applicable subheading for the ribbon will be 5404.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for strip and the like (for example, artificial straw) of synthetic textile materials of an apparent width not exceeding 5 mm, other. The rate of duty will be 5.1 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.
