RE: The tariff classification of a belt from China.

Dear Mr. Tinelli:

In your letter dated May 31, 2000, on behalf of Brod Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted sample is a belt composed of plastic sheeting with a polyester fabric overlay. The belt is approximately 1” wide with a metal buckle and eyelets. The plastic imparts the essential character to the belt; the polyester fabric overlay is considered mere embellishment.

The applicable subheading for the belt will be 3926.20.9050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Other articles of plastics and articles of other materials of headings 3901 to 3914: Articles of apparel and clothing accessories (including gloves): Other: Other, Other.” The rate of duty will be 5% 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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 212-637-7084.
