RE: The tariff classification of item # 951342, known as “Beware Drips of Blood” imported from China

Dear Ms. Aldinger,

In your letter dated February 1, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Item # 951342, which is known as “Beware Drips of Blood”, is composed of 100% gooey red plastic that is sticky and spells “Beware” in imitation dripping blood when it is stuck to windows. The dripping blood is 8” in height by 11” in length, and comes packaged in a sealed plastic bag with an illustrative cardboard header.

Item # 951342, “Beware Drips of Blood”, is for purely decorative purposes to be used in the home to create an atmosphere of fright during the Halloween holiday.

The applicable subheading for item # 951342, “Beware Drips of Blood” will be 9505.90.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for "Festive, carnival or other entertainment articles, including magic tricks and practical joke articles; parts and accessories thereof: Other: Other." 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 Wayne Kessler at 646-733-3026.
