RE: The tariff classification of tin dry erase boards from China.

Dear Ms. Santos:

In your letter dated April 25, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Three samples were provided with your letter. The tin dry erase boards are writing boards made of tin that, at the time of importation, are packaged for retail sale with a dry erase marker with a dry eraser top. There is also a small sheet of magnets that will stick to the board. There are three styles: No. 184139 (Scooby-Doo), No. 184152 (Jimmy Neutron), No. 184154 (Sponge Bob). The writing board, marker, eraser and magnets are classified together as a set. The writing board imparts the essential character. As you requested, the samples are being returned.

The applicable subheading for the tin dry erase boards will be 9610.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for slates and boards, with writing or drawing surfaces, whether or not framed. The rate of duty will be 3.5 percent ad valorem.

Importations of these products might be subject to the provisions of Section 133 of the Customs Regulations if they copy or simulate a trademark, tradename or copyright registered with the United States Customs Service.

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 Joan Mazzola at 646-733-3023.
