RE: The tariff classification of plastic beverage identification bands from China

Dear Ms. Ramsey:

In your letter dated June 25, 2007 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted illustration depicts an item identified as “Set/8 Beverage ID Bands,” item number 62330.

Each retail package includes one each of the following colors: white, pink, aqua, blue, yellow, orange, gray and green. When in use, each one can be slipped over a different bottle neck and pulled down over the bottle for a snug fit. They can be used on bottles or cans of soda or beer and can also fit most standard water glasses. They are marketed for use at parties, cookouts and gatherings where a variety of beverages are served to multiple guests. Each band has the word “mine” imprinted on one side and each measures approximately 2 inches in diameter.

The applicable subheading for item number 62330 will be 3924.10.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for tableware, kitchenwareof plastics: tableware and kitchenware: other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.
