RE: The tariff classification of plastic nursing nipples from the Netherlands.

Dear Mr. Timmers:

In your letter dated October 13, 1999, on behalf of Atelier, the Netherlands, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Five samples were provided with your letter. All the nursing nipples are composed of silicone. The various styles include the vario, dental and normal, for babies ranging in age from 0 to 18 months.

The applicable subheading for the nursing nipples will be 3926.90.1500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, nursing nipples and pacifiers. The rate of duty will be 3.1 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.
