RE: The tariff classification of craft kits from Canada.

Dear Ms. Carr:

In your letter dated September 11, 1989 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item is a craft kit which contains all materials to produce two novelty magnetic memo holders. The kit contains two wooden clothespins, various feathers, a wad of cotton like material, four strips of colored paper, and two porous tipped marking pens. They are packed in a plastic bag which is closed by a paper label.

The applicable subheading for the craft kit will be 9608.20.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for felt tipped and other porous-tipped pens and markers. The rate of duty will be 8 percent ad valorem.

Goods classifiable under subheading 9608.20.0000, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a 7.2 percent rate of duty under the United States-Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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.
