RE: The tariff classification of a doll's scarf from India

Dear Ms. Swamy:

In your letter dated June 13, 1997 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted, item #JMA-01, is referred to as a doll's "Rebozo Scarf". The item is designed to be worn by an 18 inch doll. Made of 100 percent cotton, the scarf measures approximately 33 inches in length and 6 inches in width. You have furnished us with marketing literature which supports the intended use as a doll accessory. Furthermore, the fabric and construction of this scarf render it impractical for use by either an adult or child.

The applicable subheading for the doll scarf, item #JMA-01, will be 9502.91.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for dolls representing only human beings: garments and accessories thereof, footwear and headgear. The rate of duty will be 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 Alice J. Wong at 212-466-5538.
