Dear Mr. Din:

In your letter dated September 29, 1998, on behalf of Tactica International, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is an electric, hand-held hair dryer. It is a small, travel size blow-dryer with a cord that stores inside the handle.

The applicable subheading for the hair dryer will be 8516.31.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for electrothermic hairdressing or hand-drying apparatus, hair dryers. The rate of duty will be 3.9 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 James Smyth at 212-466-2084.
