RE: The tariff classification of Halloween Witch Gloves (item number A079CA00162) from China

Dear Mr. Crago:

In your letter dated December 11, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling on Halloween Witch Gloves (item number A079CA00162) which are being returned upon your request.

The Halloween Witch Gloves are comprised of 100% nylon and measure approximately 18” in length. The item consists of a pair of black fingerless gloves that features a spider web design.

Although referred to as “gloves”, the Halloween Witch Gloves are not functional, as they have no fingers, palms or support. Instead of functioning gloves, the item is a textile decorative slip-on for use as a costume accessory.

The applicable subheading for Halloween Witch Gloves (item number A079CA00162) 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.
