RE: The tariff classification of a “Metallic Witch Broom” from China.

Dear Ms. Santos:

In your letter dated June 23, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a sample of a “Metallic Witch Broom” identified as item number 193441. The item is a broom with a plastic handle that measures approximately 24 inches in length with shiny green metallic strips at one end that simulate straw. You indicate that the broom will also be imported in designs with black or purple metallic strips. The broom is not constructed in a manner suitable for sweeping, but is intended as a toy costume accessory.

Your sample is returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the “Metallic Witch Broom” identified as item number 193441 will be 9503.90.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Other toys; reduced-size ("scale") models and similar recreational models, working or not; puzzles of all kinds; parts and accessories thereof: 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 Wong at 646-733-3026.
