RE: The tariff classification of Balloon Weights from Canada

Dear Mr. Raycraft:

In your letter dated February 27, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item, presently without an item number, is a balloon weight made by wrapping sand in colored foil. The instant sample is three and a half inches in diameter. The foil is blue on the outside and silver on the inside, tied with a silver tie. Once a balloon has been inflated, it is tied with string. The other end of the string is tied to the balloon weight, allowing the balloon to be used to decorate a table.

Because there is soil (sand) in the product, it is suggested you inquire about United States Department of Agriculture importation requirements from:

United States Department of Agriculture
220 Broening Highway, Suite 140
Baltimore, MD 21224
(410) 631-0075

The applicable subheading for the balloon weights will be 9503.90.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other Toys; : Other: Other. The rate of duty will be free.

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 J. Wong at 646-733-3026.
