RE: The tariff classification of key caps, key covers and key rings from China.

Dear Mr. Grieszmer:

In your letter dated February 20, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Three samples were submitted with your letter. The key caps are composed of plastics, and are designed to fit over the head of key blanks. The item described as a "key ring" is a plastic cover designed to fit over the head of a key for color identification. The "Spiral Wrist Key Chain" consists of a plastic spiral cord and a steel wire key ring. This key chain is designed to be worn on the wrist.

The applicable subheading for the plastic key caps and the plastic identification covers for keys will be 3926.90.9880, 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.

The applicable subheading for the Spiral Wrist Key Chain will be 7326.20.0050, HTS, which provides for other articles of iron or steel wire, other. The rate of duty will be 4.3 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.
