RE: The tariff classification of Snap-Off Blades from China..

Dear Ms. Nappi:

In your letter dated October 20, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client The Stanley Works.

Sample numbers 11-300 and 11-301 are snap-off blades used in standard utility knives. The blades are scored such that when the outermost blade becomes dull, the user simply snaps off the dull blade to expose a new, sharp blade point.

The applicable subheading for the Snap-Off Blades will be 8211.94.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Blades: For knives having fixed blades. The rate of duty will be 0.16 cents each + 2.2% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177of 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 Melvyn Birnbaum at 212-637-7017.
