RE: Ponytail Wraps, Style # EM-PT & EM-WA Ponytail Wrap & Earring Set, Style # EM-WAR

Dear Mr. Kennedy:

In your letter dated May 16, 1990, on behalf of your client, Erin Michaels Mfg. Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective imports are two textile ponytail holders and a textile ponytail holder and earring set. The ponytail holder and earring set is classified under the General Rules of Interpretation (GRI) 3(c), i.e. in the absence of finding the component which give the set its essential character, the set will be classified under the heading which occurs last in numerical order among those items of the set which equally merit consideration in determining its classifica- tion. The heading for ponytail holders appears last in the Harmonized Tariff Schedules.

The applicable subheading for the textile ponytail holders and textile ponytail holder and earring set, will be 9615.19.6010, HTS, which provides for other combs, hair-slides and the like of textile materials. The rate of duty will be 11 percent ad valorem.

Goods classifiable under subheading 9615.19.6010, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a 8.8 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.
