RE: The tariff classification of a bead lacing activity kit from China.

Dear Mr. Miller:

In your letter dated July 30, 1997, on behalf of Creative Expressions Group, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a bead lacing activity kit. It consists of variously shaped and colored plastic beads and one pair of cotton shoelaces blister packaged on a header card which reads "Craft Magic Beads Lacing Fun".

The essential character of the kit is derived from the plastic beads.

The applicable subheading for the bead lacing activity kit will be 3926.90.3500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other articles of plastics... Beads, bugles and spangles, not strung (except temporarily) and not set; articles thereof, not elsewhere specified or included: Other. The rate of duty will be 6.5% ad valorem. At this time there are no quota restrictions or visa requirements for this article.

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 Lawrence Mushinske at 212-466-5739.
