RE: The tariff classification of a collapsible folding umbrella from China.

Dear Ms. Walton:

In your letter dated November 18, 1996, on behalf of Mary Kay Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have requested a binding ruling for a collapsible folding umbrella with a specially designed carrying pouch. No sample was submitted with your request. Your letter states that the umbrella is of a solid color vinyl, with a wooden handle designed as a goose head. The overall length of the umbrella, from the tip of the handle to the tip of the umbrella is 32 inches.

The applicable subheading for the collapsible folding umbrella will be 6601.91.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for umbrellas and sun umbrellas (including walking-stick umbrellas, garden umbrellas, garden umbrellas and similar umbrellas): Other: Having a telescopic shaft. The rate of duty for 1997 will be 3.3% ad valorem.

There is a Temporary Modification for duties on Self-folding telescopic shaft umbrellas. 9907.66.01 provides for "Self-folding telescopic shaft collapsible umbrellas chiefly used as protection against rain (provided for in subheading 6601.91)". The duty rate is free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 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 Martin Weiss at 212-466-5881.
