RE: The tariff classification of decorative beaded trimmings from India.

Dear Mr. Crowe:

In your letter dated August 7, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted samples, Styles no. FR/2007 and FR/2008 are decorative beaded trimmings in the same pattern. They consist of short strings of plastic beads that are affixed to a narrow (1/2") woven band of fabric so that the beads hang from the fabric. Style no. FR/2007 consists of white and gold colored beads; style no. FR/2008 consists of black and silver colored beads.

The beaded trimmings are composite goods. The essential character of the goods is derived from the plastic beads.

The applicable subheading for the beaded trimmings will be 3926.90.3500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics... beads, bugles and spangles... articles thereof, not elsewhere specified or included, other. The rate of duty will be 6.5% ad valorem.

Articles which are classifiable under subheading 3926.90.3500, HTS, which are products of India are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations. .

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.
