RE: The tariff classification of a picket fence plaque with three wooden hooks from China

Dear Ms. Marcoux:

In your letter dated September 28, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on a product identified as the Picket Fence Plaque w/3 Hooks #52050. Photographs and a description of the product were submitted. The product consists of a wall plaque in the shape of a picket fence with three hooks for hanging various things. The plaque measures approximately 8” long x 4-7/8” wide x 1-3/4” deep overall, including the hooks. The plaque and the hooks are made of medium density fiberboard and are painted white. In addition, the picket fence plaque is decorated with a ladybug and a sunflower made of polyresin.

The applicable subheading for the picket fence plaque with three wooden hooks, item #52050, will be 4420.90.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for wooden articles of furniture not falling within chapter 94. The rate of duty will be 3.2 percent ad valorem.

The holding set forth above applies only to the specific factual situation and merchandise description as identified in the ruling request. This position is clearly set forth in 19 CFR 177.9(b)(1). This section states that a ruling letter is issued on the assumption that all of the information furnished in the ruling letter, either directly, by reference, or by implication, is accurate and complete in every material respect.

This ruling is being issued under the assumption that the subject goods, in their condition as imported into the United States, conform to the facts and the description as set forth both in the ruling request and in this ruling. In the event that the facts or merchandise are modified in any way, you should bring this to the attention of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and you should resubmit for a new ruling in accordance with 19 CFR 177.2. You should also be aware that the material facts described in the foregoing ruling may be subject to periodic verification by the CBP.

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 Paul Garretto at 646-733-3035.
