RE: The tariff classification of embroidered patches from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Hawkins:

In your letter dated October 22, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted five samples of embroidered patches. None of the samples are numbered or otherwise identified. In a telephone conversation you stated that all the patches are made of man-made fibers. Sample #1 is a patch measuring approximately 2.5 by 3 inches. The patch has a white twill background upon which is embroidered a traditional ship anchor. Sample #2 is an oval, measuring approximately 4 inches at its widest point, made of felt with an automobile embroidered on it and the logo “Fair Wind 50’s”. The ground fabric is of a felt like construction. The third sample, measuring approximately 3.5 inches at its widest point, resembles a five petal flower. The 4th sample is shaped like a traditional badge made of felt, measuring approximately 4 inches at its widest point. The 5th sample is an oval measuring six inches at its widest point. It is completely covered in chenille needlepoint and depicts the emblem of the former British Hong Kong Military Police.

The applicable subheading for the patches will be 5810.92.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for embroidery in the piece, in strips, or in motifs, other embroidery, of man-made fibers, badges, emblems and motifs. The rate of duty will be 6.3 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 Camille Ferraro at 212-637-7086.
