RE: The tariff classification of a weightlifting belt from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Welters:

In your letter dated July 22, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample is being returned as requested.

The sample submitted is a weightlifting belt, item number NIKE SP2000. It is 4 inches in width and approximately 47 inches in length. The bulk of the belt is made of a nonelastic material, presumably a foam plastic covered with textile fabric. A web fabric strap is attached for securing around the waist. A metal buckle is attached onto one end of the web fabric strap and the other end of the strap features a strip similar to the VELCRO brand fastener. This same strip is attached onto the back of the article to secure the strap.

The applicable subheading for the weightlifting belt will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The rate of duty will be 7 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 Alan Tytelman at 212-637-7092.
