RE: The tariff classification of footwear made in China.

Dear Ms. Sacks:

In your letter dated November 14, 2000 you requested a classification ruling for a child’s open toe and heel sandal, style TZN14901CR. The shoe has an outer sole of rubber or plastics and an upper of what you state is natural raffia vegetable fiber. The upper consists of a forefoot vamp and an ankle strap post assembly secured by a hook and loop closure. The upper features a floral pattern and textile edging.

The applicable subheading for style TZN14901CR will be 6405.90.90, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS) which provides for other footwear, other. The rate of duty will be 12.5 percent ad valorem.

The submitted sample is not marked with the country of origin. Therefore, if imported as is, will not meet the country of origin marking requirements of 19 U.S.C. 1304. Accordingly, the footwear would be considered not legally marked under the provisions of 19 C.F.R. 134.11 which states, "every article of foreign origin (or its container) imported into the U.S. shall be marked in a conspicuous place as legibly, indelibly, and permanently as the nature of the article (or container) will permit, in such manner as to indicate to the ultimate purchaser in the U.S. the English name of the country of origin of the article."

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter 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 this ruling, contact National Import Specialist, Richard Foley at (212) 637-7089.
