RE: The tariff classification of a bulletin board from China.

Dear Mr. Liberati:

In your letter dated October 2, 2003, on behalf of Deb Shops, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a bulletin or photo board called the “Flat Frog,” item number PO#96855. It is made of a wooden and cardboard base covered on the front side with knit pile fabric. The back is covered with woven textile fabric. Attached onto the knit pile fabric are textile ribbons at set intervals forming a criss-crossed pattern. It is decorated with textile covered buttons. Attached onto the back are two metal fittings for hanging the article. The article is designed to resemble a whimsical frog. It is used to hold pictures or notes by inserting them into the ribbons.

The applicable subheading for the Flat Frog will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

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 Mitchel Bayer at 646-733-3102.
