RE: The tariff classification of bag or kitchen clips from China.

Dear Ms. Grego:

In your letter dated December 17, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples were provided with your letter. SKU 983122 and SKU 815746 are called kitchen clips. Both are designed to reseal food bags by clamping the opened bag between the jaws of the clips. SKU 983122 is packaged four clips of various sizes on a printed card. The clips are composed of plastic with rubber grips and a metal spring. SKU 815746 is packaged four clips of various colors on a printed card. The clips are composed of plastic with rubber grips and a metal spring. The essential character of both types of clips is imparted by the plastic.

The applicable subheading for the kitchen or bag clips will be 3923.50.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for stoppers, lids, caps and other closures, of plastics. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.
