RE: The tariff classification of an artificial flower corsage from China.

Dear Mr. Sullivan:

In your letter dated November 13, 2000, on behalf of your client Newport News, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted a sample of an artificial flower that is identified as item number S01-05-001. The artificial flower has a metal clasp pin glued onto the back that allows the flower to be worn as a corsage on clothing. The corsage is composed of 100 percent polyester woven fabric.

The sample is returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the artificial flower corsage will be 6702.90.3500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for artificial flowers, foliage and fruit and parts thereof; articles made of artificial flowers, foliage or fruit: of other materials: other; of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 9 percent ad valorem.

The rate of duty will remain unchanged in 2001.

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 Alice Masterson at 212-637-7090.
