RE: The tariff classification of a stuffed porcelain doll from China.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated April 24, 2006, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as a 16 inch Porcelain Doll with furniture, assortment number 945540. This item comes in three assorted designs: Doll with Tricycle, Doll with Rocking Chair and Doll with Sled.

In each design, the doll and toy are a set with the doll imparting the essential character. The doll and toy are packaged in clear cellophane and tied at the top with a ribbon. It is not a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) bag as stated in your letter of inquiry.

The applicable subheading for the "16 inch porcelain doll with furnitureā€, identified as assortment number 945540 will be 9502.10.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for "Dolls representing only human beings and parts and accessories thereof: Dolls, whether or not dressed: Stuffed." The rate of duty will be Free.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

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 Alice Wong at 646-733-3026.
