RE: The tariff classification of “Be Koool” disposable cooling gel packs from Japan.

Dear Mr. Dyer:

In your letter dated April 22, 2005, on behalf of your client Kobayashi Healthcare, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling for “Be Koool” disposable gel packs. The sample submitted consists of a box of 4 disposable gel sheets with a chemical composition of a water-soluble high polymer, parabens, L-menthol, pigment blue 1, propylene glycol, concentrated glycerin, and deionized water. You state in your inquiry that the patches, which have an adhesive backing, provide up to 6 hours of cooling relief when applied to the skin.

The applicable subheading will be 3824.90.9190, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for foundry molds or cores; chemical products and preparations of the chemical or allied industries (including those consisting of mixtures of natural products), not elsewhere specified or included; other. The rate of duty will be 5 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 Andrew Stone at 646-733-3032.
