RE: The tariff classification of a key chain with a decorative attachment from China.

Dear Ms. Kwok:

In your letter dated November 12, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item you plan to import is a key chain with a decorative attachment. This key chain consists of a steel beaded/ball chain with a clasp, from which hangs an orange NBR (nitrile butadiene rubber) foam cross shaped decoration. You state that the key chain will be used as a promotional item.

The applicable subheading for the key chain with decorative attachment will be 7318.89.50, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for chain and parts thereof, of iron or steel, other chain, other, other. The rate of duty will be 3.9 percent ad valorem.

You inquire as to whether or not this type of merchandise is subject to any antidumping or countervailing duty cases. Steel ball chain from China is not subject to any additional duties.

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 Paula Ilardi at 212-637-7016.
