RE: The tariff classification of a flimsy costume from China.

Dear Ms. Beck:

In your letter dated May 7, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted the following costume, which meets the flimsy, non-durable requirements for classification within Chapter 95 and is being returned upon your request.

Item 62052, Cheetah Girls Fabulously Fun Dress Up Set, is a textile costume set that consists of a pink top with the screen-printed words, “the Cheetah Girls”, a pair of cheetah-print pants, plastic shoes, a belt, a headband, plastics bracelets and earrings, with the dress imparting the essential character. Although the dress has one well-made embellishment (sewn sequins on top), it has flimsy and loose visible overlock stitching of the neck, flimsy and loose visible overlock stitching of the interior seams, a flimsy hook and loop tab closure and flimsy and loose visible overlock stitching at the arms, bottom and closure edges.

The applicable subheading for item 62052, Cheetah Girls Fabulously Fun Dress Up Set, 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/.

Please note that separate Federal Trade Commission marking requirements exist regarding country of origin, fiber content, and other information that must appear on many textile items. You should contact the Federal Trade Commission, Division of Enforcement, 6th and Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C., 20580, for information on the applicability of these requirements to this item. Information can also be found at the FTC website www.ftc.gov (click on “For Business” and then on “Textile, Wool, Fur”).

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.
