RE: The tariff classification of a Journal, from China, Thailand, or Philippines

Dear Ms. Galins:

In your letter dated April 6, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a journal, made in China, Thailand or Philippines, from materials originating in Philippines, Indonesia and Taiwan. A sample was not submitted. Specifications and drawings which were furnished refer to “Virginia Slims 1999 Items: Travel Journal, #S096-3695-N99-F”.

You refer to the article as a hardcover travel journal-handmade paper cover, hardcover binding with blank pages inside; tied like a package with woven ribbon, Style VS129.

The journal measures 8" x 5.63" x 0.55", and will contain 128 pages (64 leaves) of unlined 60lb offset paper. The woven ribbon is 7/8" wide and is a blend of rayon and polyester.

The applicable subheading for this product will be 4820.10.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: Diaries and address books (bound, of paper or paperboard). The rate of duty is 2 percent.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
