RE: The tariff classification of a “love journal” from Korea.

Dear Ms. Jewett:

In your letter dated May 9, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample identified as a “love journal” entitled “I’ve Got Male” was submitted for our examination. It is a 50-page hardbound book, largely blank, designed to enable a girl to record brief information and observations about her male friends and acquaintances. The pages feature various types of captions to facilitate entries of names, attributes, dating experiences, etc. A few of the pages also provide a space for the attachment of a photo.

The applicable subheading for the “love journal” will be 4820.10.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other (non-enumerated) articles similar to diaries, notebooks and address books, of paper or paperboard. 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 Carl Abramowitz at 646-733-3037.
