RE: The tariff classification of stick-on plastic earrings from China.

Dear Ms. Ornstein:

In your letter dated December 3, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as stick-on earrings. They are composed of plastic and made to look like gemstones. They are designed in various shapes and colors. The plastic stick-on earrings has an adhesive backing that allows the product to be stuck on the skin.

The applicable subheading for the plastic stick-on earrings will be 3926.40.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics and articles of other materials of headings 3910 to 3914: statuettes and other ornamental articles. The rate of duty will be 5.3 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. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Alice Masterson at 212-466-5892.
