RE: The tariff classification of a PVC neck cord with bead from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Garrity:

In your letter dated April 3, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted with your letter is identified as a "PVC necklace with bead." It consists of a length of hollow monofilament, made of polyvinyl chloride plastics. The two ends of the monofilament have been threaded through a bead, forming a lariat style neck cord. The bead may be pulled up or down, to tighten or loosen the neck opening. After importation, the monofilament will be threaded onto a bead which is glued to the cap of a tube of bubble gum. The product is designed to enable a child to wear a tube of bubble gum like a necklace.

The applicable subheading for the PVC neck cord with bead will be 3926.90.9890, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

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 Joan Mazzola at 212-466-5580.
