RE: The tariff classification of glass micro beads from China

Dear Ms. Whitley:

In your letter dated August 22, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling regarding a “Scrapbooking Stickers Kit”- Style Number TNT003. Glass micro beads, which was one of the components within the kit, was sent to our Customs laboratory for analysis. The other components within the kit were addressed under ruling NY M86125 dated September 20, 2006.

The submitted sample, which was sent to our Customs laboratory, was a bottle of perfectly sphere-shaped clear glass micro beads. Our laboratory has determined that the glass micro beads consists of glass microspheres not exceeding 1 mm in diameter.

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/.
