RE: The tariff classification of a plastic ring box from China.

Dear Ms. Wierbicki:

In your letter dated August 31, 1999, on behalf of Avon Products, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample was provided with your letter. The ring box consists of an outer shell composed of molded plastics. The interior of the box has a foam cushion that has been slit to hold a ring. The ring box is heart-shaped, and is approximately 1 ¾ inches in width by 1 ¾ inches in length by 1 ¼ inches in height. The ring box will be imported empty and packaged with a ring for retail sale. As you requested, your sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the ring box will be 3923.10.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles for the conveyance or packing of goods, of plastics: boxes, cases, crates and similar articles. The rate of duty will be 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 Joan Mazzola at 212-637-7034.
