RE: The tariff classification of a girls’ belt from China.

Dear Mr. Armani:

In your letter dated June 3, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a girls’ belt made of chrome plated steel chain with pink ribbon of 100% polyester woven through the links. The belt has a chrome plated steel lobster claw clasp that is used to adjust the size. The belt is worn for adornment with the essential character imparted by the steel component.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the girls’ belt will be 7117.19.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Imitation jewelry: Of base metal, whether or not plated with precious metal: Other: Other: Other.” The rate of duty will be 11% 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 Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
