RE: The tariff classification of a Snap Bracelet from China.

Dear Mr. Williams:

In your letter dated April 12, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted four samples of a Snap Bracelet, all with Style No. 13259K. Each bracelet consists of a thin, flexible strip of spring steel approximately 9 inches long and 1 inch wide. A bright, colorful textile material is glued to the metal strip and completely covers it. Attached to and decorating the bracelets is a pumpkin or spider accent made of 100% polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with marabou trim, or a bat accent made of 100% polyester with marabou trim. When the Snap Bracelet is sharply struck or snapped against one's wrist, it wraps itself around the wrist, assuming a bracelet configuration.

Your samples are being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the Snap Bracelet will be 7117.19.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), 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.

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 Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
