RE: The tariff classification of artificial foliage from China.

Dear Ms. Van der Vieren:

In your letter dated April 14, 2004, you requested a classification ruling.

You have submitted numerous samples of artificial foliage sprays. The artificial foliage designs are composed of plastic parts that snap into one another. Your letter of inquiry states the artificial foliage will only be marketed for Christmas and it will be used as decorations during the Christmas holiday season. It is your suggestion that these items be classified as festive articles in Chapter 95. However, the artificial foliage designs are not accepted articles for decorative purposes like garlands, wreaths and swags. The artificial foliage will classified be in Chapter 67.

According to U.S. Customs New York Region Informational Pipeline "Guidelines for Submission of Ruling Requests", requests should contain not more than 5 items in order to be accepted, see the attached pipeline.
