RE: The tariff classification of a dog leash from Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Wahler:

In your letter dated October 23, 1998, on behalf of Yuppie Puppy Pet Care, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample identified as the Sporn Halter, style 10041, is a dog leash consisting of 55% polyproplene, 15% plastic and 10% acrylic. The item will be imported in different sizes for a variety of dogs.

The applicable subheading for the dog leash will be 4201. 00.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Saddlery and harness for any animal (including traces, leads, knee pads, muzzles, saddle cloths, saddle bags, dog coats and the like), of any material: Dog leashes, collars, muzzles, harnesses and similar dog equipment." The rate of duty will be 2.4% 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 Reidlinger at 212-466-5881.
