RE: The tariff classification of mascara brushes from France.

Dear Mr. Walsh:

In your letter dated April 16, 1999 on behalf of Henlopen Manufacturing Co. Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples of eight styles of unfinished brushes, numbers 3064, 2949, 2862, 2840, 2835, 2801, 2614, and 2452, were submitted. All styles consist of a twisted wire core about 3.5 centimeters long with somewhat stiff bristles radiating around the core and extending about three quarter of the length of the wire. All styles are imported for use as mascara brushes and will have handles attached in the U.S. While the price per brush varies, all eight styles will be appraised at values under 40 cents per brush.

The applicable subheading for the mascara brushes will be 9603.29.4090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Toothbrushes, shaving brushes, hair brushes, nail brushes, eyelash brushes and other toilet brushes... . The rate of duty will be 0.2 cents per piece plus 7 percent ad valorem.

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

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
