RE: The tariff classification of a comb with mirrored compact from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Balice:

In your letter dated July 13, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a plastic circular-shaped comb stored inside of a plastic mirrored compact. The cover of the compact is decorated with a kitten, paw prints and the words "Kitty Katty". The compact is designed as a storage and carrying case for the comb. Because the compact is specially shaped or fitted to contain the comb, is suitable for long-term use and will be entered with the comb, it shall be classified with the comb.

The applicable subheading for the comb with mirrored compact, if valued not over $4.50 per gross, will be 9615.11.1000, HTS, which provides for combs, hair-slides and the like: of hard rubber or plastics: combs: valued not over $4.50 per gross. The rate of duty will be 14.4 cents per gross plus 2% ad valorem. If valued over $4.50 per gross, the applicable subheading will be 9615.11.3000, HTS, which provides for combs, hair-slides and the like: of hard rubber or plastics: combs: valued over $4.50 per gross: other. The rate of duty will be 28.8 cents per gross plus 4.6% 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 Lawrence Mushinske at 212-466-5739.
