RE: The tariff classification of automotive accessories from China

Dear Mr. Ball:

In your letter dated August 26, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of the Allison Corporation.

The items in question are described as decorative automotive accessories which are produced in various designs. The sample items submitted feature a dice design.

Item number 8122 is a pair of plastic door lock knobs in the form of dice. Item number 8117 is a set of four dice valve caps, which consist of brass fittings for tire valves set into plastic dice. Item number 8123 is a set of two license plate fasteners. The fasteners consist of a metal threaded bolt, lock washer and nut, with the bolts set into plastic dice.

Item number 54-1900 is described as a "dice dress up kit". The dress up kit consists of items 8122, 8117 and 8123 packaged together for retail sale. The dress kit does not constitute a "set" for tariff purposes and the individual items will be separately classified.

The applicable subheading for the valve caps will be 8481.90.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for parts of hand operated valves, of copper. The rate of duty will be 3.5 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 Kenneth T. Brock at 212-466-5493.
