RE: The tariff classification of plastic picture frames from China.

Dear Mr. Patterson:

In your letter dated August 9, 2004, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample of a picture frame is identified as item number SKU # 8XXX. The picture frame is composed of plastic, paper and metal. The background panel is made of cardboard and placed inside the frame. This background panel is printed with various Disney cartoon characters. In the midst of the Disney cartoon scene there is a space to place a 4” by 6” photograph. Each picture frame is designed with a kick-stand on the back so the frames can stand on a shelf or mantle. The plastic components impart the essential character to the picture frames.

Your letter of inquiry states that the Animated Animation Company has been licensed by Disney Corporation to manufacture and distribute art products.

The sample is returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the plastic picture frames will be 3924.90.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides forother household articlesof plastics: Other: Picture frames. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.
